Lonely Planet review
This small, rustic enoteca (wine shop) is wonderfully old-school, with rows of rough wooden tables and dark bottles lined up on floor-to-ceiling shelves. But it's not just a shop, you can stop by for a glass of wine and a bite to eat – think platters of cheese, olives, prosciutto, anchovies and sardines.
The wine list is extensive (see the website) and, though biased towards Italian and Sicilian labels, includes a number of French vintages and some Champagnes.
