I made a point of stopping here after reading reviews. I was intrigued by the raw horse meat panini. It was lunch hour on a Saturday, it was crowded. We had to wait for a while, but it was fun watching the chefs prepare the food. There were quite a few what looked like pre-orders for people who were not part of the regular line. That slowed down the wait, too. But it was so worth it. The panini was absolutely delish, the bread fresh and toasty, just the right condiments. Mmm, I want to go back...

A victim of its own reputation. Good sandwiches and pizza but be prepared for a 45 queue at lunchtime. If you’re claustrophobic, this won’t be for you. It’s like a Subway on speed.

I got a “Toast” sandwich which had parma ham and cheese and it was delicious! Very simple stuff but it was hot, fresh, and the stuff a ton of meat on it all for a reasonable price! (Mine was €5.50) The place is tiny and already pretty busy at 11am but I was the only tourist there when I went! Everyone was very nice and even though they didn’t speak English I was able to get what I wanted without struggle! Definitely recommend stopping here!

The fame of this place is exactly that...a mystery. I have been here a couple of times and they serve decent piadinas and other bread based dishes but nothing extraordinary.
