Good food and fun at this place. You'll pay higher pricing, but you are on vacation in a very touristy area. Bring the family and sing along with the musician who roams the restaurant. :)

We stopped in here for lunch as we wandered the streets of the Old City, and it was like walking into your very Italian grandmother's living room. Old photos, knicknacks, statuettes and everything else you can imagine were tucked into or onto every square inch...More

Sultry red, green and orange hues are part of the welcoming décor of this restaurant which carries you for a few hours to the wonderful Italy of music and laughter. In winter, our lovers can bask in an atmosphere warmed by two beautiful fireplaces. But the uniqueness of the decor rests primarily on the fascinating collection of more than 4,000 bottles of every shape and size from every corner of the Earth.
