Caffe Taci is located upstairs from Paillon Bistro an Italian restaurant serving very good dishes which is brought upstairs to those dining at Taci. The highlight here is the endless opera singers who perform throughout the evening & into the early morning hours.

Caffe Taci Opera Nights happen every Saturday night. Upstairs at Papillon - live opera with dinner. Stay as long as you like. Highly recommended. Lots of fun - especially if you have out of town visitors. The food is good, too!
