“Very good italian restaurant”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

This restaurant is on a side street next to the State Olio Pizzeria (I think it's the same owner). The service was very good, although some reviews say otherwise. The food is very good, especially the shrimp risotto and the lasagna. The wine list is very good and prices are reasonable. Highlight for a Chardonnay from the region: Babcock. Do not miss the desserts: The Tiramissu, the Panacota (the best!) and the Creme Brulle.

“Terrific house made pastas”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Great food, wine list and service. Duck filled ravioli and veal chop were both great. Pizza place around the back.

“Delicious delicious!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

Really excellent fish, and the pasta with asparagus and chanterelles was amazing! Service was great and olives on the table were fabulous! Desserts were good, but main food better. Make sure to make a reservation!

“A very pleasant experience”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We shared the Risotto ai Funghi Porcini which we enjoyed. I found the soup of the day, a tomato with basil, rather acidic and not all that pleasant. I did enjoy my Scaloppine con Carciofi e Limone - it was very tasty. My husband liked his Nodino di Maiale alla Senape until he cut into a raw piece of pork. Service was attentive, but not overbearing.
