Our food. Including gluten-free pasta

The dishes served carry on the home-cooking tradition passed on over the years by Fiorella to Andrea who, along with Franca and Jane, is maintaining their original characteristics. You can read the menu on these pages and delight your palate with whatever inspires you most. Ribollita and Rabbit with white wine are the two dishes that have been on the menu since 1982.
