This small and cozy restaurant is excellent. The place is nice, professional service, delicious food and fair prices. The menu is not very long, but variety is enough (no pizza). They have also daily specialities. Pasta, veal involtini and grilled vegetables were delicious. Seeing the chef working in the open-kitchen is impressive: fast, detailed and tireless.

I went to this ristorante as it was close to my hotel. I was lucky to find a table because it was almost full and booking is advised. I had the seasonal pasta "mushroom+ chestnut" and the selection of cheese. All was good.

This was one of the best meals of our holiday. There are only about seven tables so you need to book ahead. The highlight was the shared antipasti that included meats, cheeses, vegetables - all very high quality and excellently cooked. For main courses we had traditional pasta dishes which were also very tasty.

This restuarant is tucked away, downstairs just off the main street. You would miss it if you did not know where to look. The staff are always helpful and you can see your food being prepared and cooked in the open kitchen. Which is a great asset to this venue. The two brothers who run the restaurant are always happy...

We stopped here with friends and had an excellent experience. The restaurant itself is quite small and has an open kitchen which gives it a really warm welcoming feel. Our table was right in front of the kitchen and we could watch all the food being prepared from scratch which was lovely. We had the antipasti and a variety of... More

This restaurant is so popular, and it is so small, that we had to book 4 days in advance. The service was friendly, and the food was good, but not exceptional. There's a good atmosphere, with the chef in his open kitchen.

So found this through TripAdvisor and gave it a try. Food was really good and the ambiance was more than amazing. Friendly staff and the open kitchen was really nice to see. Looking for something else and different, this is the place to be. Make sure to book a reservation in advance. Will be back!
