La Caravella

Second dinner in Italy alone! The server popped open a bottle of Moscato. Quite charming, this server. Brown bread with fennel. Soft inside, crusty outside, but less crusty than Da Gemma. The best breadsticks I’ve eaten. No effort to eat it at ...

Da Gemma

Would you step into a place that’s renowned for its seafood if you’re a vegetarian? I did! I say it was because of a bit of lack of time that I didn’t get to research my restaurants as much as I would’ve wanted to. This place ...

Rosati

So we were having a lazy day in Rome. You’ll know as you read these posts about my meals in Rome on this day. After mentioning in the last post about stopping for a second lunch, we walked to Piazza del Popolo, did some gazing around and then ...

Armando al Pantheon

I have little self control when it comes to food. What else explains sitting for a second lunch just because I’d heard rave reviews of this place and that I couldn’t get in earlier. I ordered chicory sauteed with olive oil garlic and ...

Zenon Taverna

Funny or not? Last night, the hubster went for drinks. And he volunteered to be the driver. I’d told him that we’d go out for lunch next day. So come today, he’s shaking his head that he has to drive and complaining to me that I ...

L’Amici

A special lunch celebrating a colleague’s birthday and anniversary at work.  It was a good place, a very friendly server and very good food. Thin crust wood-oven fired pizza.  We tried the truffle and mushroom pizza.  The crust ...

Ristorante Belforte

I believe I must’ve bookmarked this place for the views.  I didn’t recollect.  All of Vernazza, at least by the waters, looked touristy.  So I decided to try this place.  Even if it meant just whiling time, waiting for restaurant to ...

Vineria S. Marta

Italy being laid back, most restaurants open for dinners after 7 or 7:30 PM.  There are some that are open all day, but come now, would you want to dine there? :p I have this thought in my head always – if it’s that easily available, it ...

Nessun Dorma

I’d looked this place up before going.  And while sitting there wasn’t particularly necessary to get great views, we stopped anyway as we were hungry. The place is more of a drink place, not particularly an eat place.  Especially not ...

Cocopazzo

So the husband was incessantly complaining about how this was going to be a tiring day and he was least interested in anything and this was only the second day in Italy. We got lost – read separated from each other around the Duomo. So I said ...

El Brellin

We couldn’t manage tickets to the Last Supper in Milan, they sell out quite ahead of time. But our first supper in Italy was in Milan, at El Brellin, in the Navigli District. I must say, the pictures that I’d browsed online did not ...

Jaiya Thai UES

This was a first of its kind weekend. First time we made a day especially about the kid. Not that we don’t bring him out, but it’ll usually be our kind of place too. Plus an importance on a meal. I guess that’ll never go away, as ...
