An old Italian film is projected on the back wall, each table has a pair of scissors for cutting the thin-crust pizzas, and charming waiters with heavy Italian accents attend to the customers. Opening the door to this tiny, neighbourhood trattoria is visiting an Italy without pretension, expressive and generous.
On the menu, antipasti – fresh vegetables, lovely cheeses and authentic charcuteries – and pizzas with or without passata made from a crunchy, fresh base and with well-thought-out garnishes. Plus a good choice of escalopes, well-seasoned pasta dishes (with a special mention for the tagliatelli with clams). For dessert, classic tiramisu (not too sweet) or the slightly less traditional baba au limoncello.
Expect to pay around €25-€30 a head for à la carte dining. The menu changes according to the season and it’s wise to reserve as it does get busy. The shop next door is a grocery, where you can buy your own bunches of fresh herbs to take home with you.
