Interesting restaurant in an 1800's female prison, tables are set in basement of this old building. Atmosphere is fabulous. Menu is written on a chalkboard in Italian and explained in detail by excellent waiters. The Italian dinners were great.

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
