Nice little Italian gelato, coffee bar, cookies, panini and pasta place! Friendly service by the young and professional Italian!... We loved that the food was served on real plates with cutlery, cute espresso cups, so there is zero wasteful plastics & paper. Read more

Tried their pesto (4/5) and tomato basil gnocchi (3/5). It’s not a formal dine in with waiters to help you but other than that... the pastas were fresh, quickly served and better than most places that serve Italian cuisine. Read more

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 werefriendly and helpful. The only reason I'm offering four stars instead of five could actually be due to "user error": I orderedthe gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, and found the sauce to have such a pungent flavor, I couldn't finish it. I wonder if thesauce was made with gorgonzola piccante, instead of gorgonzola dolce, but admittedly, I don't have the training to differentiatethe two. All I know is that the flavor, though it may well have been both fresh and authentic, was far too piquant for mypalate, 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. Read more

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. Itwasn'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 thecafe. Read more

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 anddesert. Was not busy at all and staff was readily available to serve. The gnocchi with pesto sauce was absolutely delicious andpaired well with the 2015 Monte Antico. Ordered a couple different deserts which were also phenomenal - nutella cheese cake andthe sweet but fantastically warm dark chocolate crossiant. Amid Covid, they have the outdoor seating in front of the plaza tosit and relax while eating but we took it to go. Food presentation was great and would definitely go back again. Read more

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, Ienjoyed it. Friendly staff and very clean place. Good breakfast place. Read more

The person behind the counter was super friendly and patient when we came in with a bunch of noisy kidswho all wanted to sample the ice cream. Read more
