I Coppi, 9th St. betw 1st and A.

We took in Wigstock last night and then wandered to find a restaurant. We ended up at I Coppi, a _very_ nice Tuscan restaurant. Very authentic (the chef/owner came here from a town 25 miles NE of Florence). Great decor, large comfortable tables, excellent & friendly service, and a huge dog to keep us company!

I had crostini with figs and melted cheese, served with a nice salad; and then pappa al pomodoro (tomato/bread soup). My wife had an appetizer of watermelon and ricotta salata; and duck breast with pancetta and carmelized onions. My daughter had shells with sweet sausage and tomatos.

We drank vernaccia -- they had four brands on the menu -- and ended with cantucci with vin santo and a remarkably good piece of chocolate cake. Nice coffee, too.

$125 and a bargain at the price.
