Since the name of the restaurant "La Brace" (cinders) implies charcoal grilled meat, that's what we came for! I ordered the classic grilled steak with rosemary - delicious! It came with a side of oven baked potatoes and grilled veggies. Atmosphere was okay, not particularly elegant but comfortable for a family dinner. We will be going back!

This restaurant was reserved for us by the staff at the Richigi Hotel. They were expecting us when we showed up. Food was good, service just okay. They were very busy.

We enjoyed a terrific lunch at La Brace. From the start, the appetizers were outstanding. We had fresh vegetables and an assortment of meats and cheeses. This was followed by a great pasta course of paccherri (sp?) stuffed with ricotta and spinach in a light cream sauce. In addition, the tortellini stuffed with boar losses with olive oil was fantastic.... More
