I came here to seek refuge from bad weather and found the Mentelocale brilliant, because its glass panels mean that one can sit outside and be sheltered by the weather. The staff was neither excellent, nor rude. Mostly they got the job done. I came here specifically to have the Farinata a local dish (similar to Rösti or Kartoffelpuffer) made... More
