This cafe came to me highly recommended, and it most aspects, it did not disappoint! I loved the wide selection of coffee, gelato, and pastas. The store itself is small but impressively laid out, and it boasts a vibrant atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only reason I'm offering four stars instead of five could actually be due to "user error": I ordered the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, and found the sauce to have such a pungent flavor, I couldn't finish it. I wonder if the sauce was made with gorgonzola piccante, instead of gorgonzola dolce, but admittedly, I don't have the training to differentiate the two. All I know is that the flavor, though it may well have been both fresh and authentic, was far too piquant for my palate, and as much as I wanted to enjoy it, I could not. Fans of blue cheese would likely love this sauce, but unfortunately, it wasn't for me. On my next visit, I plan to try the vodka sauce, and I'm optimistic it will be much more to my taste.
Very pricey wow. But it was a good Canoli. Remind me of being home in New York 40 years ago. But if you are traveling on a budget you might want to pass this place unlimited budget go for it
I enjoyed this hidden cafe with its variety of bakery, desserts and other goodies. The Gelato was quite delicious, the place gave off a authentic Italian experience. People working there are quite friendly and gave me a number of recommendations. It wasn't too busy when I got there in the afternoon. The cafe is inside a building and they do have tables and chairs next to the cafe.
Truly excellent. Best Italian food in the area that I've tried; great taste, high quality, and run by a super friendly family! I've had almost all of their sauces, most of their pasta, one panino, coffee, and a few of their cookies, and nothing has disappointed so far. You can really tell they use quality ingredients and know what they're doing here. I think about them frequently and really wish I lived closer.
Wow - this is place is amazing! Probably one of the better Italian places we have ate at. Albeit a bit hidden off the street and did not have full inventory of what was listed but well worth the visit. Came on a Saturday afternoon for a quick meal and desert. Was not busy at all and staff was readily available to serve. The gnocchi with pesto sauce was absolutely delicious and paired well with the 2015 Monte Antico. Ordered a couple different deserts which were also phenomenal - nutella cheese cake and the sweet but fantastically warm dark chocolate crossiant. Amid Covid, they have the outdoor seating in front of the plaza to sit and relax while eating but we took it to go. Food presentation was great and would definitely go back again.
Fresh tasting Italian pastries. Very crispy on the outside but the fillings were a hit and miss for my family. Our kids are more accustomed to Asian types of bakery/pastry (strawberry fillings, custard, chocolate, red beans, and taro). Nonetheless, I enjoyed it. Friendly staff and very clean place. Good breakfast place.
My husband and I were walking around when we come across this place. It took me back to Italy! They have delicious pastries and coffee. I will never try to eat a cannolo anywhere else in the USA. And their price is great!! I'm excited to come back and try their pastry filled with pistachio and their Gelato
Wow! The ice cream was just amazing. My favorite was Banana, Nutella and strawberry were the kids favorites. We didn't try the food but it looks great. The person behind the counter was super friendly and patient when we came in with a bunch of noisy kids who all wanted to sample the ice cream.
