This is a tiny but great place to eat a real italian pasta, madr by the kind lady that serves you also. Get a plate full of grana padano cheese, with the most wonderful “aceto”, you won’t be regret!

Go to "La Frasca" is eat well but you have to follow what the owner/chef/waitress say to you. You will enjoy every minute, just one thing. It could be a lil expensive but totally worth it
