While the outdoor dining area in a historic building is nice, the food was disappointing. As I tell my non-Italian friends, you can tell if an Italian restaurant is a good one by the quality of their bread. Well, their bread had no texture nor flavor. Appetizers were run-of-the-mill average, portions very small even according to Italian standards. Above all, though, my "brasato" (beef pot roast in wine) was totally unacceptable: a dry, flavorless slice of meat, three-quarters of which was inedible fat and gristle. My friend's "tonno in crosta" (a pompous name for a very dry piece of tunafish with some herbs on top) was also unacceptably dry and lacking flavor.
The manager, while attempting to be friendly, is not really gifted at people's skills.
While we were speaking English, two of us at the table are actually Italian. Well, I could not shake off the distinctive feeling that they were just assuming we were foreigners who did not know any better.
The one redeeming feature was the dessert.
However, in this price range (40-60 EUR per person) there are much better choices in town. Not planning on going back.
