We went to dinner at Sfizi (which is italian for "little treat") the other day and it is good authentic italian food, so authentic, its made by actual italians!
Sfizi is located right next door to Dolce Vita, which is practically legendary for its food around here. The parking lot overflows each Friday and Saturday night into our neighborhood. Sfizi is more of a market, with a variety of olive oils, pastas, fresh cookies, prepared meals, pizza, wines and a cappucino machine. It even has outdoor seating so you can enjoy a nice dinner (or lunch).
The food is great and the service is too. The owner, Lino, is a friendly guy who talks with customers and takes a lot of pride in the food and service and it shows. If you get a chance, stop by and check out Sfizi. Jack liked it, too.
