We had a great evening at la Corte dei Grilli. The personnel is really friendly and speaks English. Food is well prepared and very well priced. We enjoyed the garden setting. Definitely worth a visit or two while in the area!

Visited with 5 other people and overall the food was very good. A few problems with descriptions, why do Italian call Veal beef? Its quite annoying when you order a T Bone steak and it comes white and pale, instead of red and juicy. One...More
