“Nice little bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

Went there on Friday night. Inside relatively full many people also outside. Staff is friendly, prices normal. After midnight started to get slowly empty as people went to parties

“Not worth visiting......”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Came here in September with 3 friends. There was no atmosphere inside at all, a few people sitting by the bar not talking, not many others there either. As the night went on more people did come in, but most of their clientele were outside on the street where the atmosphere was much better.
The main problem with the venue is the extremely rude unfriendly barman who refused to serve me. I was going to 'discuss' this with him (i.e. why was he refusing to serve a female customer) but my friends intervened and we left the bar immediately.
I am a frequent visitor to gay bars and I have never come across such rudeness. This place is not worth the effort to find it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

small very friendly neighborhood bar locally owned and operated - good music , you could ask sandro (bartender) to play whatever you like , the Italians are VERY friendly and I ended up going there every night ! the drinks are "big gulp" sized and the bartenders make everything from scratch , no "mixes" of any kind . it's down a small street close to the santa croce church . many people stand outside , smoking and talking , and there is also a "alcove " area that's half in and half out . basically a neighborhood bar where everyone knows your name and eveyrone is welcome gay straight ,whatever! you don't feel like you're in a "gay bar " you just feel welcome, and there's always someone there who speaks english , then you can get by with a little Italian , anyway it's all apart of the traveling experience and I would deffenatly hang out there again . I didn't know they had food there , but I only went at night.

“DEAD... No one AT ALL there”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012 via mobile

Friday 3 August, peak holiday season... I went in... One person sat on doorstep texting. Empty inside. No bar man. Nothing. Bar would be fine but my hotel room was kicking it more... Absolutely awful!!! Do not waste the few minutes walk there.
