    Just had dinner there tonight. Charming place. The
    special appetizer of fettucine with bottarga was
    excellent!! The chef was not stingy with the bottarga
    either, unlike some other restaurants where you need a
    magnifying glass to see it. Definitely order it if
    it's being offerred for the evening.

    Unfortunately, the risotto of the day, with duck and
    ricotta salata was pretty flavorless and mediocre.

    For dessert, the panna cotta with cherries and the
    flourless chocolate cake are both good.

      I have never been there but does it have less than 35
      seats? I think if it is less smoking is legal. I guess
      it makes it more authentic?...?
