Great place. Delicious food. Very affordable. Atmosphere is nothing special but the food is great. I highly recommend the pici pasta and the rabbit appetizer. The lasagna was good too though quite rich.

We had a lovely dinner. House wine was excellent. Local, not “touristy”. Well worth a visit. Pacchieri with bacon was particularly good.
