Incredible proper rustic Italian cured meat, nice simple homemade salads and lots of other goods. Don't go there for a fancy decorated plate of food. Go there for a real simple taste of Italy. In one word. Amazing!!!! More please....

very small place. they have pre-made food, you just combine your plate with whatever is exposed. A dish costs from 6 up to 12 €. Yummy and totally worth it!

Hi again, i was there yesterday, reservation is possible only for dinner, for lunch not. There are quite a few tables, so you shouldn't have problem to either get one or wait for a 15 minutes. Btw food is still good :)
