Central location, with a very nice and comfortable environment. The site is historical, as there are proofs that since the 1782 the place was selling wines and you can smell it in the air. Personnel extremely nice and competent in helping in the selection of...More

Went for dinner and everyone loved their meal. The pasta is handmade in the morning. If they have the Chestnut gelato on the menu for dessert, be sure to try it!

Go here for some really excellent food with an ambience and little extras (complimentary prosecco ) that make it worth the prices. We were quite a large group with a same-day booking (phoned about 12:30 booked in English) and chose to sit outside rather than...More
