This is a typical traditional Italian restaurant. Smooth waiters, classic dishes well cooked and a great wine list. Foccacia was great, the funghi ripiene excellent and pescatora very flavoursome. We will be back. BTW great Macchiato!

Have been to this restaurant many times over the years , food always good, service a bit off tonight , not as attentive as usual , may have been due to large group upstairs
