This upscale Italian-style cafe is located in the heart of downtown Tucson, making it a favorite stopping point for discerning downtown workers searching for that perfect shot of espresso or delectable panini. Salads, specialty paninis, antipasti, bruschette, and first and second plates fill out the lunch and dinner menu. The Paglia e Fieno Al Ragu ( white and green noodles served in a traditional bolognese meat sauce) is a stand-out, as are most of the specialty paninis. Breakfast items, desserts, and a large selection of specialty Illy coffees round out the menu at this small downtown Italian cafe.
