My wife and I discovered this little gem by chance on a Saturday morning. It was closed, but the owner saw us from inside, came out and chatted with us. When he heard that I was Italian, he told us about all the goodies that he would get, including prosciutto di Parma. I went back during the Java Tour, since they were one of the coffee places listed on the passport. I tried their prosciutto and pecorino cheese with some warm bread. Delicious. You can't get prosciutto this good anywhere else around Knoxville, I believe. Since I like sweets, I tried also their cookies and a mini-pie. Everything was very good, and surprisingly cheap. The espresso was one of the best you can get. They use Vienna coffee, which is not as acidic as most coffees used around here in town, and I am very picky about my espresso, and have tried every single place in Knoxville. In short, I highly recommend Vicolo. The owners are very friendly, the place is nice, and, above all, the food is good, and not overpriced like in many other coffee shops.
