The Low Down
What to Drink: The house-made grolla is a fun and shareable cocktail: Flamed tableside, it's a concoction of espresso, grappa, brandy, sambuca, lemon peel and sugar served in a hand-carved Italian wooden bowl.
Parking: Park at one of the public garages on Second Street or Fourth Street. It's free for two hours before 6pm; after 6pm it's just $3.
When to Go: Weekday happy hour from 5pm-7pm features Italian finger foods at the bar and drink specials.
