We sat outside and were immediately served. The restaurant makes all its pasta on location, We tried the tallarines, potato gnocchi, spinach raviolis each with a different sauce-4 cheese, creamy spinach, bolognese and pesto. We also ordered a peppered beef dish that was perfectly prepared.

There appears to be a lot of similarity to many of the restaurants in the old town. This one has reasonable prices and very pleasant staff. The food was good but nothing special. Limited wine list but ok.

The staff are genuinely nice, the food simple and good. Pasta casera is the best thing. Definitely worth a visit.
