Small and quaint restaurant. Enjoyed the food very much: specially the grilled octopus. Very accommodating: we did reservations, but confused the date. Our reservation were for the day after, but they did not hesitate to accommodate us.

The owner is from Brescia and so are the waiters. The wine is impressive. The menu doesn't change much, I live for this sense of stability. If you are driving you will always find free parking in front at 7pm. It's popularity is growing so...More
