Il Birrificio – Good food, good beer, good coffee

This one is especially great for its food. Plus at Il Birrificio they also make their own beer on the spot and have a nice selection of imports. Plus they love coffee, so you’ll get that quality barista stuff if you want. Plus they’re conveniently close to the center. Plus I’ll stop saying plus now.

The menu is simple, very tasty and planned to pair well with beer. There’s snacks, three sets of sausages and four main dishes. Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays I haven’t tasted yet. I’d go to Il Birrificio just to eat, but since I like to try different beers I’ll usually have a beer or two. Last time I tasted two different sours, the other one was their own, a collaboration with local small brewery Donut Island. It was quite good and so are their brews in general.

They don’t take reservations for groups of less than 6 persons. We have never actually needed one, although evenings can be busy. Check for more on the website or Facebook if you want to have a tasting and for details of possible events.

By the way, there used to be a restaurant specialising in garlic on the exact same spot, it had been there for 27 years. I think Birri is a worthy successor.
