Vino e Caffè-A 'Must Stop Here'

There are a couple of things that you must do while in Taurasi.  One is have lunch at Agriturismo Taurasi (see an earlier blog).  The other is to stop by Oscar's Vino e Caffe for a cornetto and cappuccino.
Everyone in Taurasi  knows Oscar Santosuosso, young, friendly professional sommelier.  Everyone in Taurasi knows Vino e Caffè.  I stumbled on it a few years ago when I brought a group to visit Cantine Caggiano.  It has been a 'must stop here' ever since.  What a place!  If you stop by in the morning, you'll lose youself in  the warm aromas of cornetti, sfogliatelle e bombe.  Order a cappuccino or caffè and you can stand, sit on a stool by the bar, or relax at one of the tables inside or out.  Mid morning, more sweets such as caprese or babà.  Later throughout the day, order an apperitivo choosing from Oscar's wide selection of wines or other apperitivo drinks. Pizzette and other snacks are available as the day progresses. Often wine tastings and other special events are held there.  Vino e Caffè has two stories so they are able to host large parties. In other words, Vino e Caffè has just  about everything, served with a smile by Oscar , his mom, and sister.

Vino e Caffè is located at Via Aldo Moro, 22  Taurasi (AV)
