Small family run restaurant near the centre. It does not have fancy decor etc... All food is freshly cooked at the premises. We have the vegetarian food which was absolutely delicious. Desserts were great as well. Owners are very friendly and service is prompt.

Piazza della Erbe is a very crowded place with lots of places for food and drinks. The whole piazza is 'boiling' with night life. If you want to be a bit on the side of it in a more quiet area the restaurant Pansön is...More

As soon as we walked in we were greeted and immediately shown to a wonderful table. It was an outside restaurant with plants on the side and a covering on top, so you got both the fresh air and the cozy, romantic feel. The waiter...More
