Wonderful place. I feel sorry that I wasn't hungry. The suggested wine was a great choice for me even though it was made on little information.

Very informal in a back street of the historic centre. Chosen by the locals for a delicious selection of food & wine and the cool service. It's a perfect choice to get away from the crowd to enjoy a succulent meal at convenient prices.
