The Italian corner in Tallinn. Wine selection is exceptional. The antipasti is great. It’s very cozy and warm place with excellent service.

This is a small place in the old town. The food is simple yet very tasty and good quality. Only seats around 12 people so service and ambience are great. Am planning to return before we leave to try the antipasti.

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.
