Lonely Planet review
Don’t be fooled by the casual piazza seating: this restaurant is saving up all the drama for your plate. Each course of the €75 tasting menu brings two bites of reinvented local fare – a prawn in a nest of shaved red pepper, artichoke and soft-shelled crab with squash saòr marinade – while homemade pastas marry surprising flavours such as the shrimp and chestnut ravioli.
Bookings are essential and in busy periods you're required to reconfirm – otherwise you'll likely face the cold shoulder of the wait staff.
