Review
Casual dining and drinks (espresso, wine, beer on tap, juicer) with service at their many round tables. But also a long bar with a wooden countertop bar and ample stool seating. Old, worn single-group Elektra produces an espresso served (pleasingly) short - and with a glass of water. With a decent layer of medium brown crema. Thick, dense body and a pleasant, rich tobacco-like flavor of solid depth.
