We spent a couple of days in Tivoli and had lunch and dinner at this place. They serve nice fresh food here. It's a cozy place. The waitress is ever so sweet and very helpful. Her English is great by the way 😉 Absolutely a place to visit!

Not fine dining but a great place for a relatively cheap lunch great sandwiches, food prepared from locally source produce were possible. Patient waiter who went out of his way to explain the menu to my son to help him make his choice. One slight niggle would be the use of iceberg lettuce in my walnut,artichoke and Gorgonzola salad.

Conducive to both fine wine and conversation. Very friendly staff and a great relaxed atmosphere, been here twice and had great sandwiches and homemade crisps. Lovely for lunch or a nice drink in the sunshine

Excellent food ( the calamari was absolutely succulent) and quality local wines. We were amazed to find that we had spent almost three hours over... More

We stopped after a day at Villa Este. The sandwiches were EXCELLENT. The wine was good but we got an expensive bottle instead of the $13 euro house wine we asked for. Very clean. Staff was very friendly. Located just on the way from the main district toward the train.

The staff was friendly and helpful and the smoked tuna sandwich was awesome! Little fried bites for appetizers were also done well and clearly handmade, not frozen.
