Review
Casual lunch spot with a nicely decorated interior. Small black tables and chairs with leather seats and benches, Mediterranean art posters, high ceilings, brick walls, and classic crooner music of the 40s & 50s. Two small outdoor café tables on the bustling sidewalk. Mini, single-serving La Spaziale combined with Lavazza coffee (must be Super Crema) delivers deep, dark brown - albeit somewhat thinner - crema. Full bodied and pleasantly sweet vanilla-like flavor.
