This place is located near Garibaldi station, a bit Northern than the station and can be reached by a bridge from it, or from Maciachini square passing through all Farini street. This place is good for a cocktail or an aperitif with a huge buffet of fried food and vegetables, some pasta dishes and meat preparations. The aperitif costs 10... More

And to think this restaurant was 1 block from the apartment in which we were staying! The restaurant concept, for us, is unique. There is an AMAZING buffet of salads, pastas, veggies, nibbles...everything one could want. You pay €10 for the first drink, and €7 for each drink after that and the buffet is free. A bottle of water costs... More

Hands down the best aperitivo I've had not only in terms of selection but also by the types of dishes on offer. It's not your average carb loading fare, but they have taken the time to create nice flavours. The cocktails were also very nice. Highly recommended!

Very busy with locals, very small menu but everything was fantastic. Great fresh pomodoro. Crespelle was amazing great staff. My daughter says it was the best pasta she's ever had.

For what it offers, this is a very reasonable restaurant and is well frequented by local people. It's not dining venue, but doesn't pretend to be and between 6pm and 9pm there is a perfectly decent buffet, all for 9 euros, including your first drink - you won't get this in the centre! Very courteous service and a good atmosphere.... More

A real gem of a place to eat, fabulous food at a very reasonable price. A small menu but everything on it was delicious. They also do an all you can eat Italian buffet and alcoholic drink for 6 euros - you can't beat that! Would definitely recommend that you try it out. IRS located directly opposite the holiday inn...
