Ate here after visiting the archeological site and just wanted a quick lunch. We both had different 15€ menus with salad, pasta and coffee. The food won't blow your mind but was perfectly good.

We ate 2 pasta here. It was the worst 2 pastas we have had in Italy! We can not recommend. It is just a restaurant at a good spot, nothing more.
