Read the reviews on this restaurant, and decided to go there for dinner an evening in July. Had main courses with duck, and these were truly a disappointment. The meat was very stringy,almost uneatable. We paid and left for desserts at another place.

Very, very fine Italian food served with passion by the owner/chef Pino. A small restaurant with a limited choice on the menu but everything you can order is exquisite. We have been there several times and it is always a great pleasure.

The food at this restaurant was fantastic! I had the risotto which had shrimp and zucchini and was excellent. My dining partner had the gnocchi which was also very good. Our only complain was that the service was not great.

Wonderful place. Must book for weekends. English menu not very well translated but staff very helpful and friendly. Ask the chef for his recommendation and go with the flow.

I am not a lover of heavy tasting food. Here in the north of Italy typical food is very caloric. When is deep winter at zero degrees outside then is nice to enjoy this kind of food. Service it has been quick. Quality of the...More
