The place for delicious lunches and dinner, friendly apertivos and after-dinner drinks in a very eclectic aesthetic interior. There are two owners. The first is Alessandro Lo Piccolo, a Sicilian, who inherited a love for the earth and exceptional ingredients from his father. The other is Diancarlo Petriglia, a veteran of some of the world's most famous fashion houses, who designed the interior. The small space is stuffed with unique trinkets and ornaments. The French china, crystal flacons and other curiosities create a unique mood.

The cuisine is traditional Italian, complemented by the chef's personal touch. All the ingredients are organic. The restaurant is open until late, so you can always come by for a drink with friends. There’s a decent choice of drinks, all the producers are chosen by Alessandro himself, and there are some excellent finds for 12 euros a bottle. The menu is handwritten and Alessandro will personally guide you through it and give his suggestions.

Atmosphere: Friendly.

The crowd: Artists, writers, fashion editors, fashionistas, bloggers, foodies.
