    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?...?

        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.
