I was wandering the Fi Di last night when I discovered this hidden gem. Everything from the warm welcome at the front door to the buonanotte at the end, was excellent! I had a salmon crostino to start. The smoked salmon was extremely fresh and served over nicely toasted bread with cream cheese. As a second I had the burger and I dare to say that even the best burger joins' burgers in this city have nothing on it! Burger was tender juicy and cooked to perfection. Served with caramelized onions, pancetta and thinly sliced tomatoes and lightly pickled cucumbers were just the right thing to go with this magnificent burger. On the side came thick cut French fries that were nicely crisped and highly enhanced the dish. The waitress paired my main with a great Sangiovese-merlot blend called "Felice Rosso" which she explained was produced in a vineyard deep in Tuscany that is related closely to the chain of restaurants. Talking about it the waitress was polite, knowledgeable and always on point. Atmosphere was light and all the patrons for dinner were casually elegant. All in all exceptional experience!!! Oh did I miss one of the best parts! The pistachio gelato I ended my dinner with was simply divine and the espresso was real strong Italian coffee, the way I love it. Will definitely return to this Italian paradise!
