Crispy squid salad, seafood chowder - what could go wrong? Nothing in this case, two very good dishes and an excellent green tea. Service with a smile, and a relaxed ambience. Worth a visit.

Great service, we had the Spanish eggs and scrambled egg special - both were very good. Very much enjoy it very time I come here. The history sycophant in me loves the “Medici” and Italian references around the cafe through the name and artwork.
