After reading the good reviews we decided to try it out and I´ve got to say, it was a really pleasant experience. With the cheap and good menu del giorno consisting of a choice of three Starters and three secondsfor €10 encluding coffee and water you can get full easily, and with a cheap dessert (€2-3) you can round it...

Up the road to Monte Olimpino you would hardly pay attention to a couple of windows named La Ghironda, but once you test it you will surely come back...
