An amazing locals' restaurant with absolutely delicious meals made with locally-sourced products and of course... with love! Suburb Italian wines. Family-feel.

Enjoyed our visit here enormously. Very good and very interesting food at reasonable prices. Helpful waiting staff, very welcoming. I particularly liked that there was no wine list--rather I could go and choose the one I wanted, and each had its price attached. Highly recommended.

Our bicycle tour guide book recommended "Cavolo a Meranda" for dinner. It was splendid good. For antipasti we had among others anchovies with capers and Italian style garpacho soup. Reservation for dinner is needed, otherwise you will stay without dinner. Restaurant is not big. Wine...More
