A cafe where is no menu, wine is served not in bottles, but in decanter locals like to visit for a cheap and well-rested meal.
These traditional Italian cafe are located throughout the city and are designed more for local residents, but travelers also sometimes drop in for lunch. After all, in the trattorias prices are very democratic and dishes taste like home cooking. Food is often served in a family way on one large dish.
