The mediocre setting and ambience , with red checkered tablecloths and plastic flowers was a warning sign, which we chose to ignore. Food was alone these lines with little flavoring or creativity. As this was not our first Bolognese meal, we had great precedents to...More

Very good dishes, tagliatelle al ragu, tag lists with garlic and rosemarin and roast pork. All great taste. The zuppa inglese would have been perfect without the chocolate part. All in all very recommendable.

We were on a tour and this is where our farewell dinner was held. We had chucroute, a cheese platter, capaletti, green lasagna Bolognese and zuppa inglese. All were fantastic!
