  • The awesome variety of pizza toppings, among which the superlative marinara with escarole and baccalà
  • Among pasta starters, don't miss the linguine with shellfish cooked in a foil wrap, the fettuccine with porcini and truffles; or the homemade "scialatielli" with smoked provola cheese and eggplant
  • Leave room for dessert, and consider the babà or millefeuille with custard and amarena cherries
