Ristorante e Pizzería Il Pianista
Ristorante e Pizzería Il Pianista Review
There is something European about the stone building that houses this restaurant a short drive northeast of town, which is made complete with authentic Italian cuisine. The small dining room is on the ground floor overlooking a stream surrounded by trees and impatiens; an outdoor patio sits beside a small waterfall. The menu includes fresh pastas such as vegetable lasagna and fettuccine del Chef (with prawn-and-mushroom cream sauce) or napolitano (with tomato-clam sauce). Other specialties include trucha al forno (trout baked with tomatoes and mushrooms) and calamares rellenos (squid stuffed with tomatoes, cheese, and pine nuts). You can also build your own pizza or calzone or grab a pizza to go.
