Beautiful interior and wonderful food. Great wine list with local wines. Staff very helpful! Not a tourist in sight. Highly recommended! 41 euro for two with wine

I had a fave bean soup--a lovely cousin to split pea. The antipasto misti was huge but we managed to taste everything including some seasoned raw meat on a crostini. Ken had pennette with 5 flavors--porcini, proscuitto, saffron, pecorino and one more I can't remember. I had delicate homemade spinach ravioli with a beautiful saffron sauce. This area is the main source of saffron for Italy. All of the food was very rich but luckily we had ordered a bottle of Rosso (6.50 euro) which the waiter suggested, to cut through the richness.
