Happily found this delightful place open on a Monday lunchtime. Four of us shared the antipasti (12 euro each) plus carpaccio. A real treat. We were full enough not to need anything else.

We went to Il Barbarossa for lunch. The mixed Antipasti plate (~10€/person) with Capicollo, different types of Mozarella, Ricotta, Pumpin cake, Bruschetta etc. was just amazing - a must! Pasta (~8€ each) was delicious too! Very nice Service & atmosphere too!

The place is ancient and beautiful. Very few tables for a tailor made service. Recipes are creative but with a very keen choice of ingredients. A very nice experience, at a very affordable price.
