We stopped in randomly, on the way from Rome to Palaia, not knowing if we'd find anywhere good to eat. This place is very casual, with a TV hung on the wall, a few tables inside and some outside, with locals sitting around shooting the breeze. Has more of a cafe or bar feel than a restaurant feel. The servers didn't speak much English, but were very friendly and put up with us and our poor Italian. We got a simple side salad (fine) and a pasta each. I got spaghetti with clams, which was oddly really good. Pasta wasn't homemade, but it was in a light sauce of olive oil and seasoning, and the clams were abundant and fresh. I was really surprised at how nice it was given the surroundings. My partner's filled pasta with ragu was okay, but the ragu sauce had more of a cinnamon flavor than I like. Mine was clearly the superior (go me! I never order the best thing between the two of us!) If you're on the motorway and want a reliable place to stop, don't go to the horrible roadside "restaurants," this is just 5 minutes drive away from the main road and it's a very decent meal at low prices.
