This place was an excellent founding to escape the avalanche of tourists. Very cozy and with delicious food. If your girlfriend likes Spritz, this is the right place. They have a great variety of Sprites' combinations. The classic: Aperol Spritz was excellent!

I stumbled on this place while headed to the Christmas market and was pleasantly surprised. I went for the happy and it was great as they had a free food buffet and a great drink menu. The bartender was extremely nice and helpful and they had good music and a great vibe.

Stopped in for lunch and have delicious salads....fresh greens, wonderful ingredients. I had the Greek Salad and loved the fresh feta cheese. My sister had a salad with little "chicken cutlets" in it. Wonderful portions and a lovely white wine!
