Having read the reviews, we were excited about our visit to this restaurant. The service was very pleasant and the food was OK without being outstanding. However, when we arrived we were shown to the back dining room (near the kitchen and toilet) and were the only ones in there for the whole meal (except for people queuing for the toilet!).. Therefore, the experience was totally lacking in atmosphere and we would not return.

I use to come often to this little nice Osteria and I never get disappointed. On the contrary, the more I go back there the more I like it. The place is relatively small, and you need to book in advance to get a table, especially in the week end. The service is very friendly and professional and the atmosphere is informal and very relaxed. I love their selection of cured meats (I recommend their culatello and culaccia), the onion soup with crusted bread and the parmigiana. The main courses are also noteworthy: I would go for passatelli in brodo, and all their meat is very tasty (I like their trippa) The wine list is not the best in town but they are not overpriced (and you can also find some very good stuff, like some good and not too pricey champagnes). At the end of your dinner, don't forget to ask for a digestive liquor: their list of amari is outstanding. Even though it is in a quiet lane outside the main centre, it is definitely worth a stop: the first thought you'll have when you'll exit will be: I want to be here again soon.
