Review
Cramped, rather loud restaurant along the banks of the Napa River. Using a single-group UNIC machine and pre-ground Illy beans at the bar, they pull espresso shots that are large but not overflowing in designer Illy IPA cups. They serve it with a respectable medium brown crema with a larger, lighter spot at the spouts. It has a typical Illy flavor of mellow spice and wood, but it works nicely - and surprisingly, given the pedigree. Even if it is ridiculously overpriced. [CLOSED: Relocated to more southern climes.]
