Caffe Falconi was one of those 'Happy Finds' Handily located between our accommodation and Porta Nuova!
Our first visit co-incided with 'Happy Hour'. I ordered an Aperol Spritz and Gilly opted for a glass of Valcolepia Rosso - a locally produced wine, which Gilly decided was the best that she'd tasted -so far! This cost 9.50 Euros for our 2 drinks
Our 'Happy Hour' nibbles included salted peanuts, crisps, pretzels, bread and thin slices of cold meat (pic 2)
We noticed that there was a selection of plates containing some interesting looking appetisers, but weren't sure if we were entitled to sample these!
Seating outside - a couple of small tables and chairs on the pavement, while the main bar is lined with dark wood shelves containing a vast array of wine bottles (the bar is also a wine shop) and a small selection of preserved foods. Dark wood tables and chairs, provide a comfortable place to relax over a drink and 'people watch'
At the back of the bar, past the 'hidden' WC's, is another room, with seating for about 20 people - this is quite basic. Outside, is a further 'room' a glass box - not sure if this was a smoking area.
The clientele here, were of a 'mature age' (as were the staff)- The Velvet Pub opposite appeared to cater for the younger crowd, with music/karaoke etc.
This felt like an 'established business' where people visit to enjoy a good drink and a chat - no loud music drowning out conversation.
While there is a wide selection of wines -and whisky/spirits, there is only one draught beer pump here.
We returned here on the Sunday night for a nightcap - a glass each of Valcolepio!
We'll Be Back ..........!
Dress Code: Smart Casual appeared to be the norm - Guess there may be a smattering of VT attire the first weekend of June 2012!
