This was our best meal in a restaurant in Italy, including Rome, Positano, & Cinque Terra. I had the most tender gnocchi stuffed with delicious sausage. I accidentally ordered this and got lucky! This place has a special atmosphere, very historic Italian decor, excellent service, and every meal the 4 of us ordered was wonderful!!!

We came here after reading the recommendations on trip advisor.
I'm so glad we did.
The restaurant has a tiny door on a small street, but such a lovely welcome inside - we were greeted by the chef, who I'd e mailed regarding our table booking, and instantly made to feel very welcome. Our hotel had phoned earlier in the day to ask for a table on the ground floor, because it can be a little dark and damp in the lower floors of the restaurant.
Our food and service was very good, and the wine menu was impressive. I had been looking forward to the risotto that I had read about in other reviews, and was not disappointed - it was served from a huge bowl formed out of parmesan cheese.
Our table service was very attentive, and the expensive wine was very carefully served with attention to detail.
I would definitely return and recommend to anyone.

This probably would have been better without 3 children in tow but the staff were very child friendly and although the kids thought it smelled funny (which it did, we were in a cave and it smelled like it!), they enjoyed the food but more importantly making shadow puppets on the walls by our table.

The food was really good, my son has a risotto with zuccini and pecorino cheese which was yummy. Our two girls had a special request of spaghetti bolognese which not on the menu but offered anyway and we had the full works plus and amazing bottle of chianti. It cost us €157 including tax.

At the end of our meal the owner ordered us a taxi.

Although it is not a place really for children as there is nowhere for them to stretch their legs or have a run around. It is more romantic or for friends/business. That said they made us feel welcome, accommodated well and we really enjoyed it.

The food is well prepared and presented without being pretentious. When booking make sure you do not get a table on the lowest floor as this is a cellar which is cold and a bit damp.

Went here on a recommendation from the hotel. The starters were excellent. The mains were not. The truffle steak had not been left to rest for long enough. The lamb was too small. Desert was good. The wine selection has excellent.
