Best of all of then cause u can just have a butcher's board of cold cuts rather than a sandwich!!! Helps with the carb intake while in Italy and u get to eat more of the best part... Meat and cheese!!

The small restaurant is almost always full because of the good services and food. You would rather feel you eat with your family home than in a restaurant. We have asked for one person mixed plate but the lady from there made it for two.

Best vegetarian panini ever on the most tasty focaccia ever. We waited in a very short line at this tiny, self serve restaurant. We were greeted almost immediately and ordered our sandwiches to go. Wow - fresh, authentic ingredients and two large sandwiches for only 9 euros. We will return!

I liked very much the ambiance in the restaurant with all the sausages and hams hanging from the ceiling. We only had a wine and a place of mixed cheese, bread and meat. We let them prepare the plate. Somehow I feel they avoided giving us too much "expensive" stuff like cheese. Next time, we will be more specific!

Sitting on an old wooden stool in a middle of a narrow street pavement – still one of our best dinners. Great food, wine, interesting people both owners and quests. Unforgettable atmosphere.

Originally set out to eat at All'Antico Vinaio but the queue was back down the street, this place is just a couple of doors away on the other side of the street and did not disappoint, ate food choices purely on the recommendations of the server and the food was beautiful

Server recommended the most popular sandwich (prosciutto, blue cheese, eggplant) and it was great! Really inexpensive (14 euros for 2 sandwiches, 1 glass of wine, and 1 can of pop). Highly recommended.

We had checked Trip A and found this to be highly rated and inexpensive, so after some meandering, we found our spot. It is tucked in, small and super hip with non matched chairs, serve yourself alcohol and tables that have to be shared with other patrons. The salami sandwich and the prosciutto sammie were delish and meant to be... More
