Wonderful location, below the Palazzo Personé Hotel. The restaurant/bar has been beautifully restored at a location where there was a Synagoge many years back. The staff is very nice and the food and wines they offer are really good.

The prosciutto crudo starter was good. Everything else about this place was not. The manageress is monosyllabic and unsmiling. The veal was half raw and a few sundried tomatoes and bits of cheese on top do not make a dish. We were told there was...More
