Portion sizes aren't large but neither is the price. Portions are perfect for lunch and we greatly enjoyed a glass of wine and asparagus with speck with pasta all at a reasonable price from friendly helpful staff. The shop is delightful too.

I want to begin by saying that I don't typically drink espresso as I find it too strong and bitter. That being said, my husband and I went to Tessieri after chef Cesare Casella recommended it and I must admit they serve a phenomenal espresso!...More
