We ate here in September and both our dishes were great. We had a meat dish and pasta dish with a side of caramelized onions and lentil soup. The onions were my favorite just awesome cipolini's. Would recommend.

Round the back of one of the churches this is a very friendly, unpretentious trattoria that serves excellent food at good prices. The pasta, gnocchi and meat dishes were all excellent. The staff are friendly and happy to let you take your time. The portions...More
