This small Osteria is really apearl in Tallinn. Really good selection of great Italian wines that match their selection of cheeses, hams, bruschettas and other small, but very good dishes they offer here. the great espresso in the end was also top class.

Lovely little wine bar serving authentic Italian food. Great antipasti, stunning bruschetta and tasty lasagne. Friendly service, but can get busy. Recommended.

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.
