The waiter gave us hand-written menus with today’s date and after a few minutes he sat down at the table with us to take our order. He was extremely nice and friendly – which isn’t very common at restaurants in Italy – and was happy to translate the somewhat indecipherable handwriting and Italian for us.
The food: delicious!! Really some of the absolute best I’ve had in Italy. We started with a caprese salad (the freshest mozzarella I’ve ever had) and a cold artichoke salad which was lovely as well. For main dishes, my mom had a spaghetti pomodoro and I had Bolognese on a big flat rigatoni-like pasta. Again, fantastic, fresh and tasty.
We ended the meal with a mocha-flavored espresso drink, full bellies and smiles on our faces. This place is a winner!

Delicious, traditional Italian food, but people seem to go more for the atmosphere. The waiters have attitudes (in a fun and flirty way) an will yell at you for not finishing your plate or if they are trying to walk by and you're in the way. While the decor is standard for a restaurant, the music is loud and hopping! In fact, rumor has it that late night gets a bit crazy at Tito's... dancing on the tables and such...
Some of the tastiest gelato I encountered in Italy... and for those of you who just can't decide, there is a flavor wheel to help you out!
Although a bit pricey for a coffee and a bite, this is a great place for breakfast, just next to the leather market. We even ran into the man from the leather store there who suggested Vini e Vechi Sapori!
If you're feeling a bit pizza & pasta'd out, this vegetarian / vegan restaurant is not only delicious and healthy, it is also part gallery, part book shop so there's a lot to look at to stimulate both your mind and your taste buds.
