Had a fantastic meal here on Wednesday night and it restored my faith in Italian food (after a really bland pasta dish in Florence and a watery pizza made with tinned mushrooms in Montaione). Our starter was a gorgeous pesto 'terra' pasta dish - simple but the ingredients did the work. I opted for the 'blanco' pizza and had an amazing Four Cheese pizza with the thinnest pizza crust imaginable. The locally sourced white wine - photo added - really complemented the meal. Anywhere you eat that is frequented by locals is a good place to go and this was no exception. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The restaurant is quite small and the decor is a little dated. But the food is delicious. My seafood pasta was really mouthwatering and everyone else's pizza were great. The carpaccio is also very good. If you want outside tables you need to book in advance.

English menu is written on paper, there speciality is Pizza, restaurant is frequented by locals and can also do takeaway pizza. Food is cheap, a glass of house wine is 2 Euro (red or white). The chocolate soufflé was very good and well presented.
