We liked this place so much we went back. Delicious food - especially the Parmesan cheese with pears in syrup served with nuts (starter)creamy tasty risotto- best I've had anywhere, and gnocchi that was light and melts in the mouth. Friendly staff too.

Been there couple of times already. They have some of the best Tortelli. Also Culatello is very good here, torta fritta integrale is lighter than I expected. If you want a dessert also the tiramisù is remarkable.
