We found this place by chance ( walking aimlessly). We asked for local wine/beer recommendation, it did not disappoint. Since this was several hours before dinner we also ordered as assortment of vegetarian crostini and they were delicious. Good place to sip wine and watch...More

Dear, in Italian or in English, lies are always lies. Writing three reviews (“Summer dinner with friends”, “Cena con Amici” ed “August dinner with griends”) with different accounts is very stupid... :-) See you soon.

Good evening, La Cantina delle Streghe is not a typical restaurant, but a restaurant that uses local products, fresh for its dishes. I'm sorry for the wait. Generally the service is very fast. Greetings Sara

We went there for a lunch and it was fantastic - we got bruschetta’s from the house - a lovely salad with fantastic fresh salmon - and got chocolate with our coffees - it’s not so cheap but it’s worth all of it.

Definitely just an average place for only tourists. Food was not so great. At the end they even tried to put a different price on the bill. If you just want a drink with outdoor table then it's gonna be fine.
