A simple enoteca by day and in a way more of a place to sip drinks and snack than to have a full meal, L'Ebbrezza has a dining area in the back that fills up in the evening. Owner Luca's enthusiasm for what he does is quite moving—as you sample a recommended wine you can sense that he hopes you like it as much as he does. The attention paid to the quality of the wine carries over to the food. Here you can taste paccheri (large pasta) stuffed with eggplant parmigiana—or
try one of the fantastic soups. Other highlights include the rare cheeses, among them the Sicilian ragusano di razza modicana and the local caciocavallo podolico, and the daily selection of hot dishes.

This place is truly awful, terrible overpriced food, service and surroundings. The waiter we experienced smelt and had on the dirtiest jacket I have ever had the misfortune to see. We pre-booked a table only to find on arrival that there wasn't a table for us. After a wait hanging about, trying to avoid hurried waiters, we were seated upstairs at what we presumed was a much sort after window seat, not so though, we could hardly see out of the window
it was that dirty and when I looked up the lampshade above our table was covered in mould and dirt, when I looked down at my plate that was also dirty and along with a very nice finger print on my glass I nearly walked out then. I wish I had, the food was bland and unimaginative, the waiter did not want to offer any advice and most of what we asked for was not available. We left after 2 plates 60 euros worse off and wishing we had gone to a good old trattoria. Go to Da Gennaro e Titina at via Santa Chiara 6, Beautiful!!

Just cause there's history and supposedly the birth place of pizza, don't kill yourself to make it here. My wife and I went for that reason only and it was just Okay. There are tons of other hideway alley establishments with more character and flare. Don't miss out on the pleasant surprises all around.
