Fodor's Review

Food, service, and ambience harmonize blissfully at this casual but elegant restaurant inside a 12th-century building. Patrons enter through a tiny wine bar, some pausing for glass of wine before proceeding into the restaurant. The chef shows a deft hand with area specialties and shines with the fish dishes: his scampo saltato su una crema di fave e cime di rape (a sweet crustacean, quickly sautéed, with a fava-bean puree with cooked bitter greens) shifts the palate into gear. Dishes such as the gnocchi al cacao con ragù di cervo (cocoa potato gnocchi with a venison sauce) show his more fanciful side. If the chestnut ice cream happens to be on the menu, don't miss it. A terrific cheese plate complements the amazing wines poured here.
