Wonderful experience

“Have eaten in many 5 star places worldwide. This little Trattoria is a magnificent discovery – sitting about 50 yards away from the Arco Traiano in Benevento, in the shade of umbrellas, being attended by very friendly “camerieri”. Can recommend their Antipasti della Casa, all freshly made, home made prosciutto, sopressata, mozzarella, excellent vino aglianico, etc. Skipped the pasta, but had the best alici fritti and bacalao livornese. 
Will for sure go there again should we be nearby”
