This was the winner! Chickpeas, clams and more.. IT WAS SOOOO GOOD! I think its name is Coccio di pesce e legumi. It was really, really good. Now it’s time for dinner! I ordered the lamb shank… It was wayyyy bigger than I would have ever imagined!

This restaurant was a memorable experience. The food was great, service was great, I loved the cozy feel, the many things to look at – light fixtures, interior brick walls, trinkets and other artifacts reminding one of Italy and Peru. All in all, great job!
