|Segafredo Zanetti previously owned this caf� with its sleek, post-modern design and everything red & black (bar, walls, tables, cups, etc.). A couple metal sidewalk tables in front. Italian poster art, music. Bar snacks, alcoholic drinks, and chewy, stale pastries. The new ownership that stepped in and rebranded it did little besides changing the espresso machine (now a three-group Promac) and coffee - but oddly improved its espresso ratings significantly. In classic Italian caf� fashion, you order and they collect money at a station other than where you pick up your coffee (in front). Espresso "piccolo" is brewed directly into the cup with a medium-to-lighter brown, and slightly thin, crema. Classic Lavazza aroma, with a lightly pungent, herbal flavor - aided by being a properly short, two-sip shot.
