To call this a sandwich shop is a little misleading for an American. There are a selection of sort-of-recognisable sandwiches on foccacia as well as some open-face selections (tomato, zucchini, cheese and olive, etc) but the real attraction is the delicious foccacia fresh from the oven and the chance to have your sandwich selection toasted in that oven. The sandwiches are big. Two large sandwiches, 2 bottles of water, and a large bottle of beer (to share) made for a very satisfying lunch. There are few places to sit but if you do manage to grab one of the seats facing the walking street, you can people watch while enjoying your meal. I will return.

this is the best place to drop in if you're looking for a quick tasty eat in Alba. There are a few seats outside but it quickly fills up. my favourite foccacia is artichoke and cheese. there is also very good margarita pizza and variety of fresh sandwiches. 2 foccacia & 2 beers for €10 is a bargain lunch.

The chap behind the counter gently bullies you into waiting for the focaccia nearly ready from the oven - worth the wait!
