Stumbled upon this place by chance on our way to Piazza del Michelangelo. Coffee was very nice (cappuccino) with excellent pastry. Costs 1,3+1,1 euro. Do not forget to ask for a glass of water.

Serves a full lunch menu in a crowded back room. Great menu; can be noisy but delicious basic salads, pastas. Full bar and light snacks in front the rest of the day and night. A good visit if you stay in the area.

A perfect place for a traditional Italian breakfast and an exceptional lunch. Excellent coffee and pasticcie. A very popular venue with the locals - pasta primavera and a classic penne al pesto were the best kind of simple and flavour-packed Italian cooking. And, best of...More
