We went for lunch...What a feast! The antipasti was an assortment of meats cheeses vegetables and more, and all delicious. Then we had pasta, just about any way you like it and 3 different desserts. All homemade by mama!

One of the best meals that we had in Italy! Regional foods, made with great care and lots of herbs. Beautiful outdoor setting. We had an antipasti that was a sampling of all the choices, and it was really great.
