Tucked away in what looks like a converted garage in an alley-like street at the far western edge of the historic center is this pleasant, low-key dining room, an oasis of calm and refinement. Deep rose hues and subtly warm lamp light give the contemporary surroundings a welcoming, even romantic, glow, and the cuisine might be a sought-after break from heavier Bolognese fare. Many of the choices are vegetarian, including creamy risottos and an airy flan di zucca (squash), many of the main courses are fish, and even the homemade desserts are deceptively light. This transporting spot is only a 15-minute walk or a short cab or bus ride away from Piazza Maggiore.
