The name of the place that opened in December 2015 is a mix of the ancient and modern, capturing the originality of the design and architectural structure of the house where it is located. “In addition we wanted to attract the attention of those who are curious and give the café-restaurant a contemporary design that would highlight the particular location of the place, being a house on a street corner.”
The cannons at the entrance that resemble those that existed centuries ago are a sign of peace and a permanent invitation to a good meal where diners receive friendly and professional service.
