The service was good. And the prices are slightly less at Cancino than Café Toscano. And of course, you have to give it extra points for the plentitude of French bulldogs in the audience.
Toscano Cafe has a pleasant ambiance and a varied menu at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Emphasis is on Italian, including the Illy coffee.
I’m not sure I can even say I’ve really ever had great Italian food. Perhaps until tonight. I wasn’t in Brooklyn, New York. Nor in Milan. Oddly enough, the best Italian food I’ve had in my rather storied life is in Mexico City.
