“Good non-touristy place for a drink in the evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

We came here for a drink after a meal at Alle Bandierine - Spaghetteria which is opposite. It was full of Italians and had a great atmosphere. Unfortunately we missed the advertised jazz but it was still a good place for a drink. It wasn't at all touristy and had character and a relaxed atmosphere. We tried to go in the day for a coffee but it never seemed to be open so watch the opening hours.

“Great place to hang out, drink coffee, buy a book”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2011

The people here were very friendly. There was a nice sofa where you can relax, read a book, and lay out your laptop. The coffee was fine and the pastries were delicious; also, everything I had was only 1 Euro each... I was stunned when I saw the bill! One of the baristas spoke excellent English. I stayed here for about 4 hours, and no one rushed me. The wi-fi is complimentary. Also popular as a bar when the sun goes down, which I had no idea about until I was walking past it in the evening. Go here! You'll love it.
