Who we are
Al pestello is a shop historic since 1910, "reborn" in 2017 from the idea of Elena (chef) and Riccardo, the goals that the two set are manifold above all to do feel good people in a welcoming and informal place, tasting traditional dishes and Elena's creativity but also later trying to leave a good memory, especially in digestion.
