Checkered tablecloths, vintage objects, earthenware tiles, and delicious dishes in generous portions await.

Neighborhood regulars, savvy tourists, celebrities (including Robert De Niro, who contributes a foreword, and Mick Jagger), American expatriates, and figures from the world of fashion all frequent this legendary address.
