Hands down winner for favorite food of the trip. Coming from me, that’s a compliment. I would even go as far to say that my Dad would have been satisfied with Italian food and he is more picky than I!!!
First and foremost, how cute are these little places? It made me feel totally European and trendy being able to eat at quaint cafes all over town!
Little restaurants were all over the place and I could have stayed there for months eating at all different ones…
Greens from the market
Nuts from a street vendor guy…I have to say, these smelled horrid and I refused to try them.
Main course and ABSOLUTELY delicious. Why cant America serve pizzas like these?
They don’t cut them for you and that was our Italian challenge – figuring out how to cut and eat them without nice little triangle slices. No worries though, we watched a few native Italians and picked up our technique from them.
MY FAVORITE FOOD EVER. Not kidding. I order this everywhere I go, no matter the cost. If you serve me this, I will be one happy camper. Have fresh mozzarella though please!
Funky Green Stuff
I don’t know what this is and normally I don’t eat funky green stuff, but good lordy this again brought a smile to my face. It was some kind of pasta with a thick pesto sauce and almonds. CT3 has a friend at work and his soon to be wife is a chef. Chef Mari, I may have to commission you to figure this recipe out and then give me a little cooking lesson…
Hubby had to try an Italian beer and I had my coke. The beer was cheaper than water and coke.
We were squished in the corner at this restaurant.
Again out for din din
What meal is complete without dessert? In Italy, no meal is complete with out gelato! CT3 and I attempted to have large daily portions of it. I always ordered Strawberry and CT3 tried all sorts of flavors. See, I told you I was boring.
Love the cone design
