Trattoria Giovanni

So, for the hubster, this was kept a lazy day too. An early dinner – read just waiting for the restaurant to open and get in, not far from the place where we were staying. I had read about a Trattoria Giovanni, but think this wasn’t the ...

Stuffed Shells, New Beginnings, and a Tablefull of Happy Kids

I’m a big believer in the energy of new beginnings, but these last few weeks, as back to school neared, I was having serious trouble mustering up enthusiasm for dinner. Blah. Blah. Blah. I just couldn’t muster up the energy to make the ...

Trattoria Da Cumpa Cosimo

So this one was bookmarked too. And we went in early, to be able to get back on a bus to Amalfi. So, the place was empty. A server came down, putting his apron. My first thought was that my craving for authentic Italian food will not be satisfied ...

Roscioli Caffè

This was our fourth food stop for the day, not counting any gelaterias. I wasn’t able to get in the main restaurant, so we came here. They didn’t have their much popular cacio e pepe at this location so we went with a simple tomato sauce ...

I Monticiani

After strolling and eating all day, we were here, our final eat stop for the day. We didn’t particularly explore the Argentine side of the place other than probably the wine. I couldn’t get in one more of my bookmarked places, so I came ...

Zesty Salami Pasta Salad

I've combined some of my favorite things (pasta, cured meat, mayo, spice) for a not-your-run-of-the-mill pasta salad, guaranteed to be a hit at your next BBQ or summer party or weekend breakfast (no judging). The post Zesty Salami Pasta Salad ...

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 ...

Di Rienza

So we were tired and didn’t particularly have an agenda for the day, so we ended up sleeping late. And starting very late. And then walking around the Pantheon to have lunch at Armanda. But they said they were booked. And it was 12:30ish. So ...

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 ...

Taverna Trilussa

In hindsight, I would’ve gone to one of the other bookmarked places than this one that I found on http://www.stay.com/ app. This was after coming to the Trastevere hood only to eat. Well the area was very charming and it was fun wandering ...

Angelino Ai Fiori

We’re now on day 4 and a proper meal hasn’t been had since morning. We’ve gone to the colosseum and the baby has slept. So we think we’d be able to do the Roman Forum too, while he’s asleep and then grab a bite. But ...

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 ...

Schwäbische Käsespätzle (German Macaroni and Cheese)

Where I’m from in Stuttgart, Germany this dish is a classic – a quintessential Swabian comfort food dish.  Homemade Spätzle are layered with gobs of shredded Emmentaler and geröstete Zwiebeln (caramelized onions) and then ...

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 ...

Gourmet Comfort Food Recipe: Pulled Beef Ragu

Beef ragu, beef ragu, beef ragu, beef ragu….sometimes a dish pops in my head and dominates my thoughts so much, that I end up planning an entire day around making that dish. Beef ragu. It is not the first time Continue reading → The post ...

Olivia

This one disappointed me in that stood up on the reviews.  So when I entered, the place looked all good and fancy (remember, New York City is my yardstick). But when the food arrived, it all went for a toss.  The pizza was still OK, but the ...

Claudette

This was one gorgeous-setup-disappointing-food restaurant. The spiced flatbread that we ordered for appetizer was the highlight of my meal. The basil almond dip that it came with was fine. I’m not an Italian, but on pasta cooking, I think I ...

Orechiette with Roasted Tomatoes and Shrimp

To me, summery means fresh produce and seafood, paired with a glass (or two) of crisp and refreshing white wine. The post Orechiette with Roasted Tomatoes and Shrimp appeared first on Confessions of a Chocoholic.
