Nice wine bar, family owned. In a good location for people watching. Small with a tiny outside area but it is a really nice place for a glass of something cold when the sun shines.

Spent 3 nights on the run here. I wasn't "on the run" but I think you know what I mean. Lovely little wine bar with a fabulous selection of Italian wines. Great friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. The wines were all reasonably priced but I have to say the food was a little over-priced. Would go back in a heart-beat.

Great little wine bar, a fun spot that serves wonderful wines by the glass. Franciacorta is my favorite. Massimo and the staff are a pleasure to get to know. Congrats on your new son, he's a delight.
