I had to work on a paper and really enjoyed my espresso coffee and cake while I wrote. Capuccino was really good too. Great wi fi and prices.

We had only two cakes which were excellent. All look very fresh and tasty. Location is in the middle of the town. Service fast and efficient.

We went to the restaurant and not their sandwich and sweets place in front. Nice restaurant (I particularly liked their place settings). The prices are reasonable. Mostly Italian type dishes but some nice variety in salads and soups. I had the macaroni with 4 cheeses and salmon. I didn't look like a whole lot in the dish but it was... More

We only stopped here for gelatos for my children. They said that they were very good. Obviously not the same quality as in Italy but it's a good stop for a snack.

We have stopped at this café for a nice cup of coffee. They also offer nice cakes and ice cream, but I would not recommend it as a restaurant. The menu is a bit thin on that side, plus there isn't much of a turnover. It's nice to sit in for a moment, either inside or on the main walking... More

Why tourist have to pay like 130 pesos for a very bad pizza? Terrible dough and fake "jamon serrano". Bad experience. Bad service....

The service was attentive and the prices reasonable. The pizza was very average and the Jamon empanada had two tiny pieces of ham in it. The interior of the restaurant is very average. All in all, a very ho hum lunch.
