Occupying the back end of the famous "House of Trade" established by Apollonia Hirscher in 1545, this is a slightly upmarket bistro, with an outdoor courtyard. Outdoing the multifarious nearby venues flaunting Italian cuisine, dishes here are authentic and excellent. Try their homemade specialties: tortelloni ripieni con melanzane (pasta stuffed with eggplant, mussels, and pesto), or tagliolini san Daniele, made with sliced Italian ham, cream, Parmesan, and poppies. Fish lovers can choose from dorado, sole, trout, and pikeperch, all perfectly prepared, as is the beef filet with a cabernet sauce. There's also tasty roast deer, and melt-in-the-mouth oven-baked lamb, served with seasonal vegetables.
