At lunch time $22 gets you two courses and a glass of wine, with choices like the zuppa del giorno (soup of the day) to start and a main of cotoletta di pollo con rucola (crumbed chicken breast, fried and served with lemon and dressed rocket). From the main menu start with the bruschetta, or grigliati con rucola e radicchio (grilled baby calamari served on a salad of radicchio and rocket with salsa verde). Follow with the risotto del giorno or a main of malfatti allo zafferano con carciofi brasati and pangrattato (saffron and parsley malfatti with braised globe artichokes and golden breadcrumbs). Finish with the pannacotta con frutta di bosco (vanilla pannacotta served with a mixed berry compote). The concise and reasonably priced wine list boasts varieties from regional Italy among its local contenders.
