This little restaurant was located on the street level of our hotel. After we came back from our jaunt to Piazza Bologna where we shopped for some clothes and shoes, we were exhausted and needed a little rest, but we were also famished. Due to all of this, the restaurant right next to the entrance of our hotel sounded just wonderful.
To start with, we had some bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. I had the pasta all’amatriciana (6e) and this was a pretty good version of it, nothing spectacular, but ok. And at these prices I was quite happy with the meal.
The son had the burger (5e) and devoured it with a healthy appetite.
The older girl had the pasta con ragú alla bolognese (6e) and this was ok also, again, not amazing but good value for money. And the youngest one? She got to taste all of the dishes, as usual.
And my lovely wife had the pasta pomodoro (6e) which was a fair example of the simple dish.
The restaurant has an interesting decor that hinted at a library (hence the name, I guess) and a university. The atmosphere was relaxed and quite youthful as much of the clientele seemed to be students. The service was quick and attentive and we had a lovely time here.
