For our anniversary my wife, me, and our family went out to what the locals described as “the best restaurant in town.”
This is a large, lovely, and lively joint — packed to the brim with large parties. We must have observed at least half a dozen birthdays or other assorted celebrations.
The poured us all glasses of prosecco right out of the gate.
And brought some pre-bread, basically pizza dough.
Then tehy came around with these steamed clams and chickpeas.
Seen here closer up. We thought these were all freebees, but they did turn up on the bill!
Just a bit of menu!
We started with this Gavi white. Not bad, but not really my favorite Italian white of the trip.
Raw food, eaten on toast with the onions. Yum.
Salted peel and eat shrimp, like at a chinese restaurant.
Then they bring by the dessert cart.
Ladies even get a parting gift of merengues. This place was pretty darn fun. Everything tasted wonderful too. The only downside was the bill, but hey you only have your 10th anniversary once (well at least you SHOULD only have it once).
