What They Say

What a discovery! Amazing people, amazing place, good range of wine and Italian bites. Friendly faces greet you every time you drop by this place. Can’t recommend enough - have the Pastiera Napoletana!
Andrew dibden
Proper wine served by savvy wine lovers. No fuzz, just great wine and great food, so some will be disappointed by the lack of overpriced luxuries like corkage, etc. Favourite place in Cambridge (by far).
Juan Ramón Valle Ortiz
Great café with a strong Italian influence and great wines to drink on site or take away.
