Came here from the recommendations of trip advisor and were not disappointed.
Best value for money meal we had all holiday, given the selection of cold meats and cheeses as well as toasted breads with melted cheese.
We both had a large selection of hot and cold breads, meats and cheeses as well as a very large glass of wine for just 25 euros. Much cheaper than anywhere else in the city.
Although it is just classed as a deli bar (we had to lay our own table with palstic plates, knives and forks) and other reviews may say it is just a light snack, it was by far enough to fill us up. Especially when followed by a fantastic ice cream from a near by gelateria.

Actually went here twice on my trip; once when my group bought a big wodge of cheeses and prosciutto to keep at the hotel to snack on, and once by myself when I just needed some quiet "me time" along with a bite & a glass. Both times, I got exactly what I wanted, and it was perfect.

Also, the "prosciutto del brontosauro" at the front of the shop is hilarious.

Best prices for vino in the city! Meat and cheese trays are tasty and the sandwiches rival the sandwich shop up the street. Must visit.

Located on the same street as the highly rated sandwiches, we decided to skip the queue and go for somewhere a little more comfortable... And boy were we not disappointed.

Ideal place for a light lunch of mixed meat and cheese while indulging in a bottle of wine, this shop (they are not supposed to be a restaurant because they don't have a license). That only means that you have to collect the food from the counter after you made payment for them. Nonetheless, the shop has a very nice ambience and my wife and I had a nice time catching over a light lunch. And if you would like to satisfy your craving for a sandwich, do it yourself with the bread that is complimentary!

Great atmosphere, very nice staff, excellent food and a perfect Piemonte chardonnay. And this all with other pleasantly surprised guests while enjoying relaxing music. Been back twice already.
