Notes: Outdoor Seating

Low ceilings, Napoleatano food, and native Italian waiters so "authentic" it's almost comedic. They generously comp their favorite customers. Two levels for dining (more "formal" dining upstairs) with some outdoor, sidewalk seating. Good espresso asthetics. Though taste - much like that of Italian caf�s - doesn't quite fully live up to the visual potential. Richard Ginori Lavazza and ACF Miscela D'oro cups. Inexpensive for restaurant espresso.
