Fodor's Expert Review Enoteca Vespaio
It’s been a while since Vespaio's casual kid sister harnessed the lion's share of popularity on South Congress. Known for its tantalizing deli counter of antipastis, charcuterie and pâtés, this bistro café has an authentic trattoria feel, complete with cheerful Italian countryside tablecloths and patio seating. Sink your fork into a bowl of plump gnocchi bathed in garlicky tomato-arrabiata sauce, or nibble on a slice of classic Margherita pizza studded with garden-fresh basil. Juicy hanger steak and crispy fries leave you wanting more, but don't fill up on dinner. The patio is a popular spot to enjoy an espresso and phenomenal homemade desserts, from tiramisu to lemon panna cotta.
