      My favourites are the eggplant parm (a starter) and the bigoli pasta (with a duck ragu).

        Definitely share a pizza (more of a cracker-y flatbread) as part of your starters. They make this one with like a melty pork spread on it which is like the essence of pig. Very good.

            LOVE that pizza with the pork spread but it is sooo heavy. I think it's called Ciccarilli? I've also enjoyed their charcuterie platter and nodini.
            I've also had their octopus and clams with fregola, which was very good, but wasn't a standout for me.

            I loved their take on carbonara.

              Get the cervello. Lots of cervello. One of the single best plates of food I've ever eaten.
