Food Scene

fabulous refined innovative food with prices to match - book in advance and ask for a table on the ground floor room. NOTE: despite its name this is NOT your jolly Italian traditional trattoria; there are none in Italy that are genuine and not just run for tourists

very old fashioned trattoria in the best possible sense; grandmother still at the stove, vegetables from own veg patch, good quality meat bought from top butcher, but all cooked very traditionally and very simply. Their speciality is fried food.
