Ok, I went there twice on a 5-day trip. However, it was only because I was pushing some more expectation for this place. The environment is really comfy, but the food was not quite on that point we could go for "perfect" - it went always on the "almost". It could be better. And there was lack of ingredients for...

Great food, décor and music. Nice local brews (recomend the Gram Porter). Could improve a little in service, but nothing that can avoid another visit.

The atmosphere, based on antiques and furniture from the family, the young owners have created a delicious atmosphere that is at the same time cozy and informal. The sandwiches, risotos and desserts, with different kinds of coffee and a good list of wines, makes of Josephina one of... More

Good place for a snack or some tea, but avoid more elaborate dishes.
