What a fantastic little place tucked away in the middle of a plaza! They had multiple gluten free options and I went with the saffron risotto, it was really excellent.

For really authentic quality Italian cuisine, it is fabulous. Environment warm, waiters were great, very attentive.
We have been looking for really authentic Italian restaurant, NOT Italian "style". This was probably the best, since I visit Italy many years ago, and that includes many visits to little Italy, during the many years I lived in New York city. The environment was warm. The staff was warm, welcoming and very attentive and accommodating.
