Well after doing some research I've settled on a Bacchetta Strada. Today I rode the Bacch Corsa. I'm buying the Strada w/o having ridden it but the corsa is very similar.
Although the Corsa large fit me a little better, I'm getting the Strada medium. I'm 6' tall with an xseam of 46". The only issue with the medium Corsa was the height of the handlebars. On the strada, you can adjust the handlebar neck to your liking. Also the medium and large Strada have the same adjustable neck.
So here's my question - If I change the tires from 23c to 25c or even 28c will it soften the ride up a little bit? I'm a very casual rider - 20-30 mile rides and a relaxed pace.
