Venue Info

This is the 142yr-old establishments first US location, and they're definitely raising the bar for traditional Italian treats, ranging from Espresso Frappe's (obbbviously the legit version of what every 13 year old orders at Starbucks...), to pastries, slices of cake and (because it's America) even a burger. They're Italian, which means they're insanely proud of what they serve, which also means they probably take your reaction to it personally (insert crying Nonna here).
