I went for lunch. The place was packed with locals. The poor waitress was running around like crazy, so I had to wait a while, but it was worth it as the food was really good and authentic, plus it's reasonably priced.

The staff was very kind.
Even that we do no speak Italian they tried to communicate.
The food had a very good quality.

This place is very intimate and characteristic. The dishes draw inspiration from the traditional local cousine and they don't disappoint. Main courses are quite good, actually, as well as the desserts.

This is the kid of restaurant you can come across if you're prepared to look in the smaller streets off the main tourist areas. It is run by a small family unit and it was miles from the pizza and lazy pasta menus of the canopied establishment in squares all over Italy. Wonderful combinations of sauces with the pasta (involving anchovies,crushed nuts, pine kernels etc) and the same kind of interesting combinations in starters. Excellent coffee too. And full marks for spotless toilets with lost of hot water and paper towels. Only slight problem would be for a persona with walking disability as loo is down some fairly steep steps. Otherwise I'd recommend without reservation.

Uncertain if the menu changes frequently, but for sure it seems that way. The dishes well and nicely explained and made of characteristic ingredients. The waiter is knowledgeable and would be happy to go into great length to make wine recommendations, including explaining their provenance.

The portions are just right. So, feel free to order appetizer, primi, secondi, and dessert. The best dish I had was orecchiette with Bagoss cheese sauce. The pasta were smaller and very al dente. It's just wonderful.

The restaurant doesn't open until 8pm for dinner though. So, plan accordingly.
