A lovely restaurant inside and out, offering a variety of food. We were towards the end of the lunchtime, and there were only a handful of tables being served, so it was relatively quiet. The wood pizza oven was not in operation, so we chose 2 pasta dishes, and we noticed several grilled meat dishes that looked good being served at another table. The gnocchi was delicious. Perfectly fresh and light potato gnocchi served with a peppery meat ragu (surprisingly not a tomato-based sauce). I would order this dish again, it was that good, and perfectly proportioned for a lunchtime meal. Our other dish, a tagliatelle with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil was also well made, but the gnocchi was the more satisfying of the two. Well worth another try out, especially for larger groups as there is ample space to accommodate. Very well priced, with a large selection of wines plus a full bar. Will have to come back to try to pizza too.

I organized a lunch for 20 persons and the owner was extremely kind and available. Starters were fabulous! We order led two kind of Pici (traditional pasta) and they were amazing! We had then fiorentina that was great! It is the third time that we organized a lunch or a dinner and we have never been disappointed! Thank you guys, great food and wine!

This restaurant is just minutes from the apartment we rented. Have had dinner there twice so far and will definitely go back again. Excellent pizza. Outstanding Tomahawk cut steak that was cooked to perfection. The husband and wife owners are super friendly and helpful. Beautiful interior seating with some outside tables. Desserts also very good.

Sadly not very good food. Maybe as it was Sunday night this wasn't their head chef cooking but poor food, badly cooked, a little old and tired and not matching the description on the menu. Two of the contorni were inedible (patate al forno and Caponata) and the main course of veal with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and olives didn't have any olives. The bread had been cut some time before, so was hard on the outside. I had a side dish of fagioli as a starter and that was good.....
