I was been in this place with one of my friends for a dinner. The food is traditional, the price is reasonable. The "pasta" is very tasty. We will come back here.

We had lunch with a group we were traveling with. Everything was delicious. We had many appetizers, red wine, pasta and chocolate cake for dessert. Service was efficient and portions were ample. This is definitely worth a stop.

This is a place as it was common to find in Italy decades ago - when I was almost young. Good cheap food, uncomplicated ambience and as somebody said Komrads are more wellcome than fascists. In such a place one has to go to breath...More
