    Gloriously varied menu. Would recommend the Vegetarian Ruby Breakfast (even though it doesn't contain any rubies, alas).

    The lemon tart is to die for. Plus they serve a really nice latte.

    Ragus are always made with big tender chunks of beef rather than cheap mince. Like they should be. Nice.

    Try the sausage ragu, or if you're lucky, the rabbit pappardelle.

    Ignore the menu and just choose from the specials board. So much good stuff to choose from.

    If you want to drink alcohol, you have to order food with it.

    The pastas are brilliant! And the alcohol licensing is standard for any restaurant so just order a sandwich with your beer :)

    Don't order drinks here. You will be forced to buy a "snack" (the olives were horrid) and the cocktails are among the worst I've experienced

    La pasta è ok (al dente), il caffè è molto buono (espresso Vergnano) ma evitate i risotti…tentano di renderli cremosi aggiungendo un litro di panna, cosa da novellini…
