When it comes to panini, simplicity is a virtue, and the well-calibrated Italian ciabatta sandwiches at this petite, countrified café are layered with just a few choice fillings to play off each other: nutty, aged-red prosciutto di parma, with the merest streaks of fat; sharp pecorino cheese; leafy arugula; ripe tomato slices; and a swipe of virgin olive oil. With daisies and woven baskets warming in the morning sun in the front windows, this is the kind of effortlessly fetching place that brings a smug smile to the faces of West Villagers—and has everyone else considering relocation. Inside, it’s homey with a touch of indifference: smudged pale-yellow walls, mismatched chairs, and battered wooden floors. Skip the uninspired salads (the endive with goat cheese wilts on the plate and in the mouth) and stick to the café’s forte: fragrant breads and pastries handpicked from local bakeries. Ciabatta means “slipper” in Italian, and the crusty bread invites tucking in all sorts of ingredients. Try it smeared with ridiculously good Nutella.
