We loved it the first time so made a beeline when we were back in town. My wife is Italian and knows when she eats authentic cooking from her homeland. We love the bread, freshly made by their sister resturant.
The food again was good, the fritto misto was very fresh, the simple spaghetti pomodoro was no let down.
Overall we felt that the food and service and prices are on one level but the decor does not match this. The caffe in the name is not wrong, that is the feel. I think if the decor was stepped up a level people would feel they were getting the full experience. All of this said, we still very much enjoyed ourselves hence the four stars.
