The venue gets most of its goods from Golfo di Napoli Dairy, in Warren, IN owned by the cafe's proprietors. "Fior di Latte" and burrata, however, are made by on-site by an Italian cheesemaker every day - so enjoy the show. In addition to cheese and meat boards, the menu features pizza Napoletana exiting the wood-burning oven at a steady pace, salads, calzoni and panini. The Diavola pizza is a burst of flavors with fior di latte, San Marzano tomato, spicy salame, basil and anchovies. Have a perfect cup of espresso or creamy latte made on a classic pull-down lever espresso machine sided with any of the home-made pastries (sfogliatella, a flaky, layered pastry filled with sweetened ricotta, is a sure thing). Sip Italian wines and beers and buy imported food products. too.
