Lonely Planet review
A delightful restaurant with outdoor seating, Metró ticks all the right boxes. The look is simple, with bright lighting and wine bottles on the walls but the menu is altogether more ambitious, featuring a fabulous carpaccio starter and some excellent tuna dishes – try the tagliata or the tuna steak with caramelised onions.
Also great are the lasagnette con ricotta infornata e pinoli (lasagne with baked ricotta and pine nuts). The wine list is imaginative though heavily biased towards regional producers.
