In a city where many high-end restaurants tend toward nouvelle cuisine, this is an exceptional place to enjoy classic dishes made with elegant variations on traditional recipes. Near Piazza delle Erbe, it stands on the foundations of a Roman temple. Specialties include gnocchi di zucca e ricotta (with squash and ricotta cheese) and vitello alla Lessinia (veal with mushrooms, cheese, and truffles) and a signature pasta e fagioli (pasta and bean soup).

Attentive service, excellent food (the generous truffles on the pumpkin gnocchi made that dish!), and a trip down to the cellar to see the Roman road and temple wall found underneath the restaurant all combined for a great experience.
