One of the best kept secrets in Naples! A wonderful little cafe with music, wine and food in a great area of Naples. We went on several occasions and each time we found great singers and jazz musicians downstairs while upstairs, Diego the owner, was entertaining the patrons! A must see place in Naples for nightlife!!

Great place, great music and great culture. The best mojito in Europe and other good drinks. Conferences, book presentations, trios, quartets, Most pleasant in mild weather, when you can seat outside, but nice also in winter. Lovely posters everyday. Gay-friendly.
