THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Letizia's Fiore Restaurant Review

: The interior of this cheery yellow café --- lined with kitschy trinkets like vintage coffee grinders and miniature flower pots --- bears little resemblance to its more rustic Wicker Park sibling. The latter’s menu standouts (including chewy, buttery cookies, Caffe Umbria java libations and tasty Italian sandwiches) are all there to tempt you, along with even more saccharine goodies like jumbo Italian donuts. Look to a chalkboard menu for tempting lunchtime eats, such as rectangular, wood-fired Roman pizzas piled with heaps of spinach or fresh tomato slices, and deep-fried garlic bread (cleverly accompanied by a breath mint). We’re fans of the arancini --- fried risotto balls stuffed with the likes of pancetta, venison and goat cheese. At a wallet-friendly $4.50 a pop, the baseball-size spheres are meals in themselves.
