Why you should visit it
It's typical and it’s local. It’s always packed from 7–10 pm (aperitivo time) in both summer and winter. You can also enjoy a proper dinner here if you’re able to handle your drinks. It’s an amazing place full of vintage furniture and recycled objects, and it has a great atmosphere.
To get a good spot you’ll need to come at around 6 pm and queue.
