Trattoria Norina, Pontremoli

Our favourite. No menus, not much choice and no English spoken, but the food is just the best and changes with the seasons. Some tables are on the terrace overlooking the river, inside rooms have walls to be admired! Phone to reserve +39 0187 460628. Trattoria Norina, PontremoliVia Garibaldi, 16, 54027 Pontremoli
