The Biscotti Bakery is great. I especially love the chocolate dipped macaroons! We decided we would try their little cafe. We thought it would be rustic and cute. It is beyond rustic...more hole in the wall. The food was just average, not seasoned well. They had a local winery there offering wine. We ordered 2 glasses of very average to poor wine and received 1/2 filled small glasses...the big shock was that we were charged $8.50 a glass! The whole bottle isn't worth that.

The Enrico Biscotti Company is a long established and easy to find fixture in the Strip District. They have opened a small cafe, featuring wood-fired oven dishes, wine from their own small winery, and spectacular fresh baked goods. The cafe is small and tucked behind the bakery. It seats 20+ in an intimate and rustic setting. It is a fine line between charmingly rustic and rough industrial; you can decide for yourself. The menu is small but features a nice variety of meat, vegetarian and fish.
The service was amazingly quick. In some Italian establishments this means rubbery pre-cooked pasta andover-cooked sauces. Nothing could have been further from this meal. We selected linguini with meat sauce and vegetarian pasta with artichoke. The pasta and sauces were outstanding. We shared a serving of black bean soup. It was just as good. Then they served fresh baked bed that was heavy and thick and a meal in itself.
My wife's family is Sicilian/Italian and I have been eating "Italian" for 40 years. We have traveled
Italy, Sicily and the Med extensively. This meal was one of the best. Period.
And when you go, stop by the bakery and pick up some biscotti. You will count it as the best stop you made in the Burgh.

Granted, you will not get any bread here, but the cookies are fantastic. The staple is obviously biscotti, which are made just right, not too crisp, not too soft. But they do offer a variety of other options for cookies, I recommend the macaroons.

The moment you open the door to walk into the store, the wonderful aromas of biscotti and cookies reaches your senses. The baked goods are high quality and memorable. Ask for a "bag of biscotti ends" to take home and enjoy. You get a nice assortment along with a great price.
