We had lunch here after visiting the Duomo nearby. We arrived close to opening time without a reservation and were lucky to have gotten a table. The dining room eventually became very busy. The architecture was especially interesting, as the building is quite old and evidence of this has been allowed to show in the walls of the dining areas. I found this to be an interesting juxtaposition to the table settings that were slightly formal. In fact, there was a sense of formality about the service. All of the various persons that attended our table were obviously well-trained; helpful and friendly, though formal. The atmosphere felt somewhat “stuffy” compared to many other restaurants where we dined in Italy. Well, the main thing is the food, and we found the dishes we ordered were very tasty and beautifully presented. We shared a squash blossom appetizer that was excellent. The light ricotta filling and crunchy tempura exterior were enhanced by the delicacy of the flower. Very nice. We also ordered risotto with black truffles. The creamy rice was perfectly cooked. The attendant grated a generous serving of black truffles over the top when it was presented at the table. Sublime. The pappardelle in wild boar ragu was also nicely presented and very tasty. Overall, we found the food to be very enjoyable, though the prices were a bit higher than one might find in less fancy restaurants. It was a nice dining experience.
