This restaurant was suggested to us by the owner of the B & B in which we were staying. We had tried to go there for dinner one night but they were shutting down, we had far better luck two days later at lunch. There was ample street parking nearby, we parked the car, walked in and were seated. The place was full of locals enjoying a lunch out nary a tourist in sight.

There is no printed menu - the server explained what was on the menu. Happily between my poor Italian and his better English we were able to muddle through just fine. For the first course there were three or four pastas or soups. We indicated which ones we wanted. We were then asked what we wanted to drink and we ordered our usual sparkling water and wine. Our drinks and the ubiquitous grissini were brought quickly and not long after the spinach ravioli we had ordered. It was freshly made and served in a delicate butter/nutmeg sauce.

After our plates were cleared the server explained what was available for the next courses. We both selected a thin fillet of beef. We decided to split a salad and an order to potatoes. Everything was wonderful.

We were too full for dessert so we paid the bill 20 euro for two courses, two side dishes, sparkling water, and wine - and headed on our way.
