Just across the road from the horse butcher, they have some tasty horse dishes. Rather unprepossing exterior. Beware this restaurant opens at 9 pm in the evening. We arrived at 8.30 and were met with rather bemused looks by the staff. So we went for a drink nearby and came back at 9.15 and almost didn't get a seat. Inexpensive... More

Serving traditional fare from the Puglia region!! The food is the typical country fare designed to help stretch the food budget - hearty and delicious!! I love that they serve Padre Peppe from a watering can!

It was a bit of a trip to actually find it , and I'm fluent in Italian no less, but well worth it. Literally a hole in the wall with everyone signing the walls with remarks. Food was amazing believe me it is worth the trip if your nearby! Very reasonably priced as well.

Been to this place many times with my girlfriend, friends or business. It's the right place if you like old school food and if you are the kind of person that likes eating quality but quantity too. You will be surprised when you'll see the bill, very reasonable, you won't believe it! It's worth more than just a pop in... More

This is the best restaurant in town for trying the local cuisine. A small and cosy family restaurant. Unfortunately closed on Sundays and make sure to make a reservation or come early during lunch.
My personal favorite: zuppa di lenticchie e carpaccio cotto
