pasta, pizza, sandwiches & salad; nothing special. But for lovers of English bittter ale, they have a local craft brew called Terrona. The amber bitter at 6.5% is pretty good. Plenty of tables in the shade, in piazza. Worth an afternoon beer or 3.

Very nice terrace. Good service. The ladies in charge work very hard. Great variety on the menu. Too reasonable prices in my opinion, the quality of the food is in line with the prices. Room for improvement for both

We had such a great pizza and bruschetta meal as we enjoyed watching the World Cup and Antionetta was so so so lovely. The pizza (Greca and Parmigiana) was delicious and it’s in such a gorgeous location right on the piazza.
