Among the entrée offerings: rib veal chop, pork chop Milanese-style, and squid-ink linguini with mixed seafood. Desserts, except gelatos, are made on the premises. An international wine list has bottles ranging from $30 to about $250. Open weekdays for lunch and every day for dinner. Reservations recommended. New changes to the decor and menu to come soon, and they now offer $24 Three Course Prix Fixe Sunday through Thursday and $30 Three Course Prix Fixe Friday & Saturday. Happy Hour Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 5pm - 7pm; half priced drinks and appetizers at bar.
Many places offer big portions at affordable prices, but, at Caffe Azzurri, you get three big courses at one recession-busting price. The three-course meal, which includes a sweet ending of gelato, sorbet, or biscotti, is offered Sundays to Wednesdays all night, and Thursdays to Saturdays, provided you’ve ordered before 5:45 pm.
