Notes: Outdoor Seating

This Italian restaurant for Napa locals (and a few tourists) occupies a rather open space with various dining tables and a bar in the back. (There's also some limited outdoor seating.) The walls are lined with dated photographs of celebrities. Using a two-group La Vittoria machine with a lot of Lavazza branding about, they pull an exceptionally large pour with a chaotically scrambled medium and light brown crema skimming the surface. The shot is passable: not good, not bad - especially for a restaurant. With a typical mild spice and tobacco smokiness and little beyond the midrange palate. Served in Lavazza logo IPA cups.
