If you like coffee, have time to kill, or want grab something to bring home, this is a great place. Relaxed and inviting atmosphere make you want to stay. The Tiramisu is to die for...and I love the specials Menu for dinner.

Small place just like in Italy. We had the gnocchi and the panzerotti . Both were delicious. I think the gnocchi was slightly better. The panzerotti was a lot of bread. It was more like a giant calzone rather than the panzerotti you will find...More
