This is an amazing little cheese shop. The owner lets you try a variety of cheeses, balsamic vinegars, and sausages. Absolutely the best truffle cheese I've ever had. You won't be able to walk out empty handed.

We went here with a small group. We got tastings of several samples of different Pecorinos, and bought some excellent balsamic vinegar and dried black truffle slices. It's worth going in just for the wonderful aroma.
