We had lunch at this friendly trattoria on a Wednesday. We arrived soon after it opened at noon and were the first ones there. There’s seating inside and on a small covered terrace in front. We chose to sit inside to avoid smokers who might...come later. The interior is old style and atmospheric. Of course, the large flat screen TV on the wall was turned on. After all, this is Italy. It didn’t bother us though. We were warmly greet by a young man who spoke excellent English. He explained what was on the menu that didn’t contain meat. We immediately chose the penne pomodoro with eggplant and ricotta cheese. In the mean time, our friendly server brought us water and a tasty red house wine. Warm chewy bread was also brought to our table without asking. The veggie antipasti in the front counter case looked so tempting that we ordered a plate. Half way through, our server arrived with a bruschetta pomodoro on the house. Then the pasta arrived along with the parmesean cheese. It was absolutely delicious even though the penne was not homemade. Everything about this meal was perfect – the bread, wine, antipasti, pasta, and especially the friendly service and warm hospitality. This is the kind of restaurant we wish we could take with us on our travels through Italy. Highly recommended.More

Very good food in a family run place. The location isn't attractive (on one main road), the food so was! Freshly cooked, with traditional recipes and local products, as the wine was. Relaxing atmosphere; we went on a Sunday, most of the customers were local,...another good sign! Reasonable prices.More

Make a reservation or get there early as this place is really small. We waited 10 minutes and sat in the bar. But in the winter the door is right there so it can be cold. Got broccoli greens that were sauted in olive oil...and a hint of hot pepper that was very favorful. The spaghetti vongole was excellent as well as the sea bass. The fish was extremely fresh. The bread outstanding. Owners were very friendly.More
