During the day this is a popular cafe/bar with its popular terrace overlooking the Piazza Vecchia. Later in the evening though it becomes much more pubby and on a warm evening the terrace becomes an outdoor drinking den with a good local buzz from both the other customers and from the square in general.

I had one late evening beer here on my way back to the funicular and then dropped by the following afternoon for a couple more before our Sunday dinner which was held across the road at Il Sole.

If I remember correctly beers were a tad on the expensive side - 5 Euros for a small one - but it is a great position - on what has been described as "One of Italy's most beautiful squares.", and Alta is generally more expensive than Bassa anyway.

Address: Piazza Vecchia 13
Directions: On the corner of where the square meets via Colleoni, opposite the Palazzo Nuovo.
Theme: Eating and Drinking

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
