Caffe Tosca

Euro’ is not a pejorative term when applied to Tosca, the area’s paragon of service, atmosphere, and Mediterranean cuisine. Inside the converted granary, which is highlighted by flickering candles, exposed brick, and an open kitchen, you’ll find an impressive, creative wine list; waiters who are amiable and swift; and remarkable dishes like oven-poached wolf fish with dry vermouth and lamb with dates and Roman dumplings. Let’s hear it for continental drift.
