Fodor's Review

This rustic trattoria is more sophisticated than it first appears, with an extensive wine cellar and nouvelle-style twists on local dishes. Specialties include zafferano risotto pistilli, fois gras e aceto balsamico (saffron risotto with foie gras and balsamic vinegar), persico con rosmarino (perch with rosemary), and capesante scottate su purè di fagoli, olio al rosmarino (seared scalllops on bean puree with rosemary oil). The palette di piccoli campioni di lago e di mare (mixed lake and sea fish) is a worthy introduction to regional delights.
