They say to


"The interior of the restaurant is very quaint and cozy, we had lunch on the outdoor terrace fortunately covered, excellent the tagliata di scottona, tasty the ravioli with butter and truffle. Too bad about the cheesecake good but the base should have been crispier, top I cantucci with vinsanto"
