  • A modern, remodelled area that has inherited, from the old house, both the name and the books scattered around the various rooms in this café-bar. But, where once there were only books, cocktails are now also served (along with gourmet products), live music is listened to (soul, jazz or the simple sound of a grand piano) and theatre pieces and performances are enacted. A cool ambience, the décor oscillates between the modern and the classic, with green and gold-upholstered chairs, the piano in the middle of one of the rooms, huge bookcases that house the books and Botticelli's Venus overlooking the scene.
