Description: 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.

The antipasti plate was absolutely amazing in terms of taste and value for money, washed down with a delicate Chianti Classico it was an absolute pleasure to sit down and relax at this cozy yet small litlle gem. If you are in Tallinn, you should not miss this place!

Stopped in here for a glass of wine & snack after a long day of walking around Tallinn! The server was great, he made recommendations about wine & brought me some great Italian red wine! I had a panini with cheese, proscuitto & truffle oil which was yummy! I wasn't too hungry so it was perfect! The atmosphere is very cozy & relaxed, I ended up talking to some people at another table & next thing you know we were all sitting & drinking wine together! What a great night!

We were group of 3 family members and hopes for a good lunch were high based on the comments read from tripadvisor. Table was booked well in Advance. Unfortunately menu selection was really limited compared to website. Just antipasto & salads and bruchetta type of dishes were on menu. So no proper meals were served. Additionally service was unfriendly and bit rude. Extected much more as restaurant atmosphere were real Italian.

Ufo. Looking for restaurant (located in Lai street, 150 mt distance) and finish in winebar and asking full menu. What else? No pizza and ketchup? Boh.
