We were here for dinner because of all the very good reviews. I am sorry but we are far less enthusiastic.

Negative:
The restaurant is near a very busy road: you can see, hear and smell the cars because the windows and front door are open. We had two pastas one of which was fairly good, the other undercooked. For secundi (main) we had meat balls and pork ribs. It was fairly good, but not more than that. The ribs were 50% fat. The meat balls were very greasy. Everything was highly salted. The mixed salad as a side was very basic but still costed €4,50.

Positive:
The staff was very friendly and service was quick. The meat was cooked well.

In total the meal (two pastas, two meat courses, a side salad and one bottle of water) costed us €38. For mediocre and highly salted food served in a location besides a very busy road, this is not worth it and better options are available for the same price.

absolutely love this place. the menu is written on the board in Italian of course. no menu not much English. Risotto too die for and the desserts are super. Parking is an extreme challenge and if it is full before you arrive then find somewhere else. these table do not turn.

We hardly get a table without reservation.There's a nice grill as you enter the restaurant.Because of that you we ordered mix meat plate.In addition we have eaten chicken stew and rigatoni.All of them were satisfaying.
Maybe the only down side is price of the mix meat plate :(
