This place is two things:
One, a craft beer pub that actively supports Italian micro-breweries
Two, a true gastro-pub with extremely well prepared pub food. I had the steak tartare which was delicious and a glass each of two Italian IPAs - I hadn't even realized those existed before this visit.
If you love beer you really should come for dinner one evening.

This is the establishment one would want on the end of your street. Good beer on Tap (Chimay Triple) as well as others. Menu of Tap beers probably changes weekly if not daily so choice is not a problem. Proprietor is on premise and so is his attention to detail. Good hearty food with Beer compliments. If you want just beer, no problem....If you want food....he will feed you. We had the chicken & potatoes. Another table had a great looking Hamburger. Menu is limited, but, once again it compliments his beers & attention to detail. (Fruit & nuts with the Imperial Stout). Simply awesome!

We came after our dinner (which we regretted slightly based on what was served at other tables) and spontaneously decided to accompany the international craft beer (picked from a great selection) with a serving of a whiskey-chocolate-mascarpone, which was amazing.
We had a great time in this pub and would certainly return to sample their food menu if we would be staying in the city for longer.

Loved this place. We wanted to one back but ran out of time. The beers are great...diverse, fascinating and interesting, the food great: fresh, tasty, plentiful and the landlord is such a lovely man...welcoming, engaging and great with our rubbish Italian. This place has real character and a real sense of history...loved it.

Felt like a typical old fashioned English pub with good range of draught beer - about 6 beers on tap. Staff were helpful and had good English. We drank Zanna which is a Trieste brewed beer and Borderline from an Italian microbrewery. Great to find craft beers in Northern Italy.
