We saw this restaurant by coincedence. We booked the table with the best view. The wild boar tasted great. At first they gave me the wrong dish, but quickly after mentioned it to the waiter, I got my new dish.

Excellent coffee, surroundings and an astounding view. This cafe has an air of nostalgic Italy with heavy, polished furnishings, glass doors and grand decor. Nothing to dislike apart from the occasional pushy tourist who insists on blocking the far reaching view to take, selfish photos....More
