Trattoria Aldina information
Lonely Planet review
Forget the Michelin stars for a second. Cloistered upstairs in a utilitarian apartment block, Aldina feels like a precious secret guarded loyally by local shoppers, who roll in from the adjacent produce market. The lunch-only menu is spearheaded by the kind of no-nonsense homemade grub that only a 60-plus Italian nonna raised on hand-shaped pasta is capable of concocting.
There's no written menu; take what's in the pot and revel in the people-watching potential.
