After realizing we wanted tortellini nel brodo, a bolognese specialty, most places were booked on a Saturday night and were happy to turn us away without reservations with incredible attitude. We walked past this wonderful restaurant and decided to try our luck. The owner, rather...More

Among the best food ever eaten in Italy! The setting is an old pharmacy with bottles and ephemera on all walls. Staff could not have been nicer and prices very fair. Pasta dishes superb. Desserts by comparison a bit weak. Seating tight. Wines wonderful.

Tiny place tucked away from main centre. Always enjoyed places where there is no menu, it means the chefs know exactly what they're doing - & its no exception here. You're given a choice of 2 starters & 2 or 3 mains max. All locally...More

We made our reservation by email and called to confirm. Person answering the phone spoke English. A very popular spot with a gregarious owner who stops by all of the tables to share a few words, worth visiting.
