great location on a road junction in the old town near totto lotto with vines hanging down from the roof. Gianni is very hospitable, nice to sit for a drink and watch the world go by.

What a lovely place to enjoy a drink or two. In the heart of the old town with a romantic upstairs area open to the stars. Well worth a visit.
