A huge, arched cellar, this has a funky contemporary feel, but has been family run since early last century. The paintings on the walls and inscription around the fireplace were painted by impecunious artists in exchange for food during the 1930s, and the owner has poems written by Trilussa that were given as payment for meals. And you can see why, as the food is good, including great antipasti, pizzas and pastas.
