We hopped into Tavernetta San Maurizio because it was starting to get dark and super hungry. The man at the front was warm and welcoming, but we quickly noticed that all the other patrons weren't speaking Italian. A German couple, a couple of American families, a Japanese couple.... not a good sign. If the Italians don't want the Italian food here, something must be wrong.
Our waiter wasn't warm or very firendly, but when I asked him in broken Italian whether he recommended the pesto or the carbonara, he smiled broadly and quickly told me to get the carbonara.
Of the three dishes we ordered, mine was the winner, by far.
The carbonara was absolutely superb, but the pesto, seafood pasta, antipasto, and wine were all pretty meh. Unless you're searching for a great carbonara and not much else, this restaurant is safe to skip.
