Fodor's Review

Locals swarm to this café, which does just about everything, and does it well. It opens at 7 in the morning, and offers tasty breakfast pastries; it closes late at night, and offers nightcaps. In between, lunch is served, as is dinner. Although Italian dishes are on the menu, the fantasia part of the menu is more fun. Tapas are served (in two portions); the petto di pollo dorato con carciofi (lightly breaded and sautéed chicken breast with artichokes) is served in a zesty yogurt dressing and whets the appetite. You might want to follow it with spaghettini con bocconcini di coda di rospo (thin noodles with monkfish medallions), and conclude with the delicious salame di cioccolato (it looks like salami but is, in fact, made wholly of chocolate and served with a crème anglaise). The place comprises two rooms, and showcase temporary art on elephant-colored walls. The wine list is winning, as is the service.
