Very nice restaurant, really love the design and location. Great food and great service from Ivan who gave us local wine recommendations and lots of extra Parmesan for my carbonara :D

Visited here in September with friends while on holiday. The restaurant was full when we arrived but we were offered complimentary wine while we waited for a table which was lovely. The food was so fresh and delicious. We will definitely be returning!

We randomly chose this one. The service was great and the food was remarkable. The truffle risotto and the shrimp,prosciutto and zucchini linguine were gorgeous. We had a local red eco wine. Cannot recommend it enough.

This restaurant was around the corner from our accommodation and after reading reviews, we decided to have dinner here. The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived at 6:30 which worried us slightly in terms of whether we were making the right choice or not....More

Very great restaurant. The Pizza was delicious and the risotto with truffles was best ever. The friendly waiters were unique and completed the nice atmosphere, despite the rainy storm and floods outside. Lucky strike! Thanks to you all and we hope to see you again!...More

I hadn't checked reviews before choosing this place but to us it was a disappointment.. While the food wasn't pricey, it was also not very great. Both our seafood spaghetti and zucchini/panceta pasta came with barely seasoned tomato sauce and hardly any of the mentioned...More

A couple of minutes far from the church of St. Donatus, yet far enough from the crowd. Cute and delightful restaurant with its romantic terrace and delicious italian food, will give you memorable experience. In Salsa rossa you can fill the taste of Italy in heart of the old town. Try delicous pizzas made with mozzarella cheese, focaccia bread, San Daniele prosciutto and other Italian specialties.
