Today is run by Deborah Martelli along with her husband Alessandro Formaggi. Deborah is the sommelier and she has the task of choosing and combining the wines, Alessandro devoted himself to the the cooking, from the appetizers to desserts and ice-cream made expressly. The bread is baked freshly both at midday and in the evening.
