I ate a risotto with duck. It was most delicious risotto I had ever eaten during my travel. And I like there services too. They even not charged coperto. The postcard that they gave me at count was beautiful.

Their baked eggplant in parmesean cheese is to die for! It is super delicious, high recommended! The steak in rucola and truffle sauce is quite nice too. Pasta bolognese is average.
