Description: Originally a delishop for wines and hams that came through Raekoja plats, it was transformed into a wine bar and general store. After the 2008 flood the cellars were restored. Under an old ceiling, Swedish style, is now possible to eat in this suggestivs, 18th-century location. The furnishings, partially reconstructed with antique materials, re-create a typical wine bar atmosphere of Tuscany. Since 2006 the place has been run by the Giomi family who offer a traditional Tuscan menu, based in panini, antipasti, salads and a broad choice of wines.

“Real italian atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Walking in the streets of Tallinn I discovered this place near the big church, and captured by the name and the dishes proposed I decide to try. And I made the good choice. A really good Italians pasta, typical one (not like you can find in lots of rubbish places) and not expensive.
I recommend this place both to Italians and to foreigner who want to have an Italian food experience.

“The human wine list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

It had been a warm day's sightseeing in Tallinn, so what I needed was some refreshing wine to end the day. I went into this charming wine bar, close to the centre of the Old Town, and asked the waitress for a wine list - she pointed to the other person serving, Massimo, and said 'He's the wine list'. And she was right - if you like to drink good wine, go there and put yourself in Massimo's enthusiatic and knowledgable hands: you won't be disappointed.
