Lunch for two yielded a decent meal of scaloppine, cinghiale, and spinaci not much different from any similar establishment in Italy. The antipasto, however, differed quite a bit. We were surprised to find a small pitcher of chicken soup to pour on the fegato crostini...quite good. The small supply of prosciutto was very chewy; the cheeses were served in teeny little bits. Often you can get full on an antipasto in Italy, but certainly not here. Add a bottle of Santa Christina for a reasonable tourist-town bill of 63 euro.

Wes topped by here on a whim, but were pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff, who spoke English very well and made us feel welcome right away. The food was very fresh and the deserts were amazing. We sat inside, upstairs however they did have a few tables outside on the street. The food came out very quickly, however we weren't rushed so we felt relaxed.

10/7/2018 - We lucked upon this slightly hidden but wonderful gem! The pici cacio e pepe was fantastic- rich but the homemade pici was surprisingly delicate. Also not to be missed is the deer ravoli and pizza with super thin crust. The service was gracious and prompt!

This place fills quickly, so either get there early or make a reservation. The food was wonderful and the service was prompt. We ate pumpkin pasta which was creamy a rich, the duck was thin and a bit over cooked but had excellent fall seasonings. The pear cake was delicious. If you are tired of meats and cheeses, craving something fresh, I would definitely recommend the melon with prosciutto. The melon was perfectly ripe and balanced the prosciutto’s saltiness. The mozzarella was also extremely fresh and juicy. A tag team of service kept things moving along seamlessly.

Great range of local dishes - great pizza, local chicken liver pate, grilled lamb and local meats all amazing. Excellent house wine at only €10 for a bottle. As 2 couples we all had an excellent meal Al fresco (at our choice) for only €25 per head inclidinh wine. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant also frequented by many locals and also for take away pizzas (good recommendation)
