Last week we visited the astounding city of Tallin. We were worn out of walking around old town and we decided to stop by Gallo Nero. It was a right choice as we loved the fresh and simple food we ate there. Antipasti and the...More

This is a must! Cheese fondue with truffle, some antipasti and a good selection of wine. The wines can be quite expensive, but the food costs next to nothing. Book a table!

Not your typical dinner destination but a memorable evening indeed. We had bruschetta, antipasto and tiramisu and all three courses were delicious. A very authentic little venue with a great atmosphere. The staff and the wines are wonderful also.

If you like good Italian food this is recommended. The service was very good and the price is right for the quality of food served. Four of us thoroughly enjoyed it.

Don't miss out on the Ham & Cheese plate. Great quality and a nice price on that. And if I recollect correctly - there's possible to order a glass of wine from any of the bottles in the local. Except the high end ones behind...More

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.
