A good lunch of grilled vegetable starters and pasta mains. All freshly prepared with good ingredients. Decent house wine. Handy for all the sights of the old town.

Local trattoria with fair prices in the heart of the old city. They have all of kinds of local dishes. The cheeses and cold cuts are a must have.

It was a very hot day, we were all very hungry, the kids were getting cranky...and then we found Il Cantuccio. What an amazing find. A wonderful little gem of a restaurant serving local specialties with very friendly staff. Fantastic meal!

Pasta with beans was one of best pasta ate in area. Meat was nice but not super, this time wine was correct, more expensive, service was correct. Good option.

The restaurant is run by an old italian woman who is surely a good cook. They have a very deep menu. Unfortunately her staff is not particularly trained. The food ends up being very variable in quality - if the owner cooks it, you get a good meal. Otherwise, good luck. The staff are often rude, and often change the prices of the meal based on what they feel. We saw the staff rudely kick out a pair of tourists who were asking the waiter what something meant since they spoke no Italian. The waiter rudely said - no English, this is Italy. They also allow some folks to sit outside while refusing service to some folks.
