I still feel so full that I don’t know if I will be able to do justice to just one more story about food but I will try. Today Mira (Camillo’s sister Mirrella) suggested that she drive us to a small town outside of Rome called Monterotondo, (round mountain), for lunch in a little restaurant that she had found by accident. It was to be about an hours drive, it took over two – I am pretty sure she got lost while trying to find this restaurant on purpose.It was worth the drive – the little “La Locanda di bacco” offered food of the day, no menu, a wine list with prices from 8 to 150 Euro and a family atmosphere. A perfect end to our effort to find ‘Italia Profunda’ [Piazza della Libeta 9/11 – tel 06 906 22366]
I chose Fettuccini con Tartufi and Mira had gnocchi with Parmesan Crocanti – To top off the whole experience I had a ‘frutta di Bosco’. Only pictures will tell the whole story.
See you next week back in Rio.
