“With strong overtones of coffee and botanicals, this drink packs a surprisingly complex flavor profile, considering its simplicity,” said Owner Johanne Killeen. “We love the structure of a meal in Italy. It is not a 15-minute quick bite, but rather a relaxed multi-course affair with plenty of wine that can last three hours. After an antipasto, a little bowl of pasta, a main course and salad however, a good digestivo is a great idea.”
