Fodor's Review

Sooner or later everyone makes it to this stylish but informal place with candles and white tablecloths. Thin-crust pizza is cooked in a wood-fire oven; the Monteverde pizza, with bacon and the works, is the most popular. For pasta, you can't go wrong with the traditional Bolognese sauce. Organic lamb and beef are also on the menu, along with homemade mozzarella that is used in salads like the caprese. Calzones, sandwiches, and a decent wine selection round out the menu.
