Forget going for a cup of tea or coffee. The Italians tend to go for a glass of wine and this is the place to go. Of course you can get coffee and other drinks but this is a wine bar with beautiful food. Even the local police force frequent it at lunchtime. This place has won awards and you... More

The first night there we had cured meats plate (mortadella, prosciutto and salami) and everything was of the very best quality. We also had roasted pig leg with salt and pepper... More
