Just down the hill from our apartment location - nice place to stop at the edge of the village for a drink/snack before heading to dinner.

The free wi-fi... More

Came here a couple of evenings for Gelato with young children and was just average icecream. Also quite a few young people drunk hanging around... So not that pleasant an experience. Felt a bit unsafe. Icecream nothing special. Staff not that friendly. Bit offhand. Not going back.
