The Antipasti was delicious, the house barbera red was also delocious, great atmosphere and as someone else commented a constant queue of people outside. Vale la Pena l’attesa! Tutto delizioso,cucina semplice ma fatta bene. Il capretto era la fine del mondo! Ritorneremo sicuramente.

It’s a time-tested truth that travellers, hungry for new cultural experiences, should always seek the places where the locals drink and dine.
