we were in a hurry leaving the Del and stopped at this restaurant upon advice of family. We had pastries and cappuccino. I can not recall that I have had any better. It is a perfect stop in little Italy if you want real pastry.

NO LONGER IN BUSINESS: This restaurant is closed/no longer in business and was sold to the new owners of Civico 1845. It is a great restaurant now as Civico 1845.
