We first came to this restaurant for a late lunch after we had transferred from Positano. We thoroughly enjoyed the salads we each selected from the menu which has quite a selection of salads. The entire menu trends towards lighter fare although you can get a complete dinner as we did later.

We returned here for dinner and, as it had been raining and was a cool evening, we asked to be seated inside. We were taken to the second floor (that's the first floor if you're European) into a room whose walls were covered with a large collection of drawings. I think these are copies of "studies" by various masters in preparation for carving statues, or preparing the facades of buldings. At any rate, it's quite a fascinating collection. If you climb the stairs, rather than using the elevator (lift), you'll find photographs of the square outside which were taken about every 10 years back to about the mid 1800's.

Our server was Francesco, a very charming fellow. I think he may have been practicing his English, which is very good, as he served (and entertained) us. The restaurant was not busy and Francesco was attentive without being intrusive.

The wine list is a bound volume of some 144 pages. Francesco told us there were over 2000 bottles in the cellars. Overwhelmed, we asked Francesco to select one for us. It was very good without being overpriced. Dinner was excellent, well prepared and presented.

We spent 1 night in here, very nice experience, very varied menu, we went for Pizza, but could have chosen a wide variety of meats or fishes. They sat us next to the 2 young guys who were running the authentic wood burning pizza oven, two charming young men. Every one here was very welcoming, will certainly be going back!!!!

Had lunch here twice......delicious food and excellent service. On our second visit it was an Italian public holiday and the restaurant was very very busy but the service was still excellent.

Enjoyed two very good lunches here during our stay in early April 2014.

Fresh flavors, excellent selection of light salads and wonderful soups. Many options for lighter fare, including dishes with fruits and vegetables as the mainstay.

Great location right on Piazza Tasso.
