An Italian canteen with a €12 two-course lunch menu.
The decor here ticks all the fashion boxes: blue walls with lights suspended from the ceilings. But what really caught our eye was the lunch menu displayed proudly in front of the entrance: €12 for a starter and pizza or pasta. Choose from three starters such as soft burratina served with warm pizza dough for sluicing everything up with or salmon tartare boosted with pomegranate seeds and grapefruit then melt-in-the-mouth perfectly cooked mortadella pizza or fafalle pasta with a generous portion of courgette and basil sauce (but which was perhaps a little on the al dente side).
Of course, we had to finish with a tiramisu, which was not bad at all. We leave this little spot, satisfied by our bargain – yet beautiful – lunch.
