We has some bruschetta for our lunch. Service was reasonably speedy. Presentation was fine: food looked appetising. Tasted good too. Nothing special but nice lunch.

What a lovely find. An atmospheric and small café which serves cheap, quality food in good-sized portions. The staff were really friendly and we found it to be a relaxing break from sight-seeing. Another one we intend to return to.
