We visited on a Friday evening. We arrived about 7pm and the restaurant only had a few diners. This quickly changed and by 8pm the place was packed. From the outside the place looks small but is actually quite expansive inside. We enjoyed pizzas which...More

Full of local and tour guilds so you know it has to be good. Great menu and drinks, interesting interior and nice open garden. You pay your bill at the bar went you leave.

Good food, athmosphere, staff, wine vegetarian alternatives. The best! Hard to find hidden away in the dark alleway, but really worth trying to find.

Seek this place out! Plenty of seating area in and outside. Friendly waiters. The food is very tasty and typically Lombardian. Mainly the locals eat here. Their pizzas are amazing and so fresh. Try the local wine for around 15 euro. Sometimes service is slow...More

Ate here on the recommendation of our B and B, and it turned out to be one of the worst meals I have had in Italy - we ordered the Ravioli and a Pomodoro Pasta, with a side salad and a bottle of wine. It...More
