Referred by the staff over at hotel Cardano we arrived at two for a late lunch. Very hungry we had to wait more than half an hour until the food started to arrive! The the waiter went inside and whenever we wanted to ask for something we had to go look for him inside).
The food was very very simple. My son took ravioli with tomato sauce - there were maybe 4 pieces of ravioli there. My daughter ordered the lamb chops, only 3 tiny pieces arrived, one was more bone than meat. The spaghetti with shrimps had ver very few shrimps. The sea food pasta looked nicest, but my son said it wasn't that tasty. We ordered mixed salad which contained mainly the very bitter purple salad (no sauce of course). The sea bass was very simple and very tasty. Still hungry we ordered an additional dish - a Milanese veal (breaded/ schnitzel) which we decided was the best of all the dishes and probably the most satisfying. The whole meal including water cost us around 88-89 euros.
The place has wifi only for the guests of the bed&breakfast upstairs, not for the restaurant guests.

I went to this restaurant with business associates but knew nothing of it and expected pizza and a beer. However, the pizza they served was called "Pinsa" because of the dough they used. It's made from soft wheat flour, rice flour, soy flour and mother yeast and for its high digestibility. The result was this texture and flavor that I'm going to try and recreate at home. If you find yourself in the neighborhood, definitely worth an evening to try this out. Only complain was that the service was slow but it may be because we likely doubled their expected number of customers that night.

We’re recommended by cardona hotel to go and eat over there. Longest wait ever, only a few tables were taken and more than two hours wait for one two plates of pasta.
Don’t bother going there if tired after a long flight
