Friendly, easy-going atmosphere, fresh food, excellent price ratio. They serve platters of ham and cheese and have different vegetables. I'd recommend the cheackpea salad with mozzarella and herrings. Another must is the "finocchiona di cinta senese"!

We loved this place. It is small and there are few choices. But the food is excellent and it was so cheap! The antipasti was fantastic and the pasta was also supergood.

Fantastic experience. Restaurant full of locals, we wanted to eat in a place used by locals so as to have an authentic experience. They were very busy, but welcoming. Food simple but tasty.

This is a very small, cosy restaurant, with limited food options. However, the options you have are just amazing. This is where locals choose to eat so it is a great atmosphere to get the taste of Italy.

What a perfect little cozy restaurant tucked away in this beautiful city! We had read about this place in a Rick Steves guidebook and decided to try it out, we were not disappointed. There is no menu. You walk into the restaurant and at the...More
