For 11 euros, you'll get to enjoy their "aperitivo" which includes a glass of drink (alcoholic or not) and a buffet of sumptuous foods. You can choose from a list of drinks and if you're into non-alcoholic, I recommend their drink which is strawberry-based, I...More

Maya is a buffet type restaurant that goes by the name of aperitivo in Italy. You pay for a cocktail (€10 or so) and have access to the buffet. There is a huge variety in cocktails and the food is pretty good.

Thank you Roksana, this review flatters us. There is one sentence of yours that I'd quote in front of the place: "do not worry to be late since they bring new plates even at 10pm". Looks like locals are not having this clear. I don't...More

Hi Arturo, let me say that even a drop of water is considered a drink (and I'm telling you this as friend and not as PR manager). To serve water we do a service and I wonder why it shouldn't be considered as that. We...More
