anted? They had one of the world's best dark beers. "Moretti
" -La Rossa Birra, Doppla Malta. I imagine if you were walking
down a small street in an Italian city he size of Rochester and

Of Italy used to be next door to
Canaltown Coffee on East Avenue.
They moved out to Canandaigua and I don't kow what they are called

has moved into this spot. Canadagua used to have a great Italian
restaurant called Caruso's and we all headed out there on prom
nights to have dinner in our rented clothes. The drinking age
was eighteen back then but they would serve us at sixteen. We
used to order Chianti and lasagna.
