Encouraged by the happy memory of a new friend (Hi, N.!), I finally stopped into Bar Magenta at the corner of Via Carducci and Corso Magenta in Largo d'Ancona. I've only been meaning to do it for, oh, maybe 15 years...More......
I don't rush into things, do I?
Lovely on the outside, authentic and picturesque on the inside, it's bigger than it looks from the outside, and not only offers coffee and drinks, but also simple food and--yes!--free WiFi.
For more info, see this site, as I couldn't find an official one for the bar: http://milano.tonight.eu/birreria/bar_magenta
(Remember, I get no kickbacks of any kind for these notices.)
