"Fishing is in the family. The grandfather was a fisherman and the restaurant used to grill and sell his catch. They are into traditional food - river eels, ducks, geese, frog's legs, saffron risotto - but they do the old dishes in such a way that they are transformed into haute cuisine. Their tortelli de zuca [pumpkin] are the best I've ever eaten. The baby eels are fantastic."
