Found this Restaurant on Google. Went as per the timing mentioned and it was almost closed. The owner who spoke English was too courteous to let us in. She suggested the Pesto Pasta which was the first pesto Pasta of our trip. It was good. Vegetarian burger was good too accompanied with vegetable salad. The apple pie was very good... More

Walked in, single guest, no Italian. They were super busy but still found me a table, got me a nice pasta dish and some wine. Great place. I'll be back.

Me and a couple of colegues finished work early enough to grab a quick dinner before our flight. We discovered this small place which surprised us a lot with the home made dishes. Although we did not have a full meal and shared the dishes, every bite was amazing. Highly recommended

Genuine Osteria as the name suggest. Fresh ingredients and good preparation. With an eye on cost, they offer a fix menu for lunch with some choices or specialities from the kitchen. They have a menu divided in days. Funny but effective. No surprises here. Unlike to happen you reject a dish. It is just as good as it looks. Well... More

I was here in June, and enjoyed both food (fried fish, handmade beer and an excellent dessert) and location. Easy to find, easy to park (at least at night). Recommended.

I friend of mine took me there. The place looks to me cosy and nice. The staff is friendly and able to give right suggestion for the food. I had a fantastic "baccalà con polenta" and also the cream brûlée with orange was delicious. Only points not really ok was that there were too many people and was quite impossible... More
