Locals simply call it "da Gianni," and they fill these two unadorned rooms at lunch and at dinner. Though the interor is plain and unremarkable, it doesn't much matter—this place is all about food. The usual starters such as a tasty tortellini in brodo are on hand, as are daily specials such as gnocchi made with pumpkin, then sauced with melted cheese. Bollito misto (mixed meats boiled in a rich broth) is a fine option here, and the cotechino con purè di patate
(a deliciously oily sausage with mashed potatoes) is elevated to sublimity by the accompanying salsa verde.
