Oh lordy, this was delicious! The veal was so tender and I liked that it wasn’t in a regular tomato or red wine sauce. This sauce was so flavorful and really complemented the veal. NOMS!

Rum-soaked dessert. €6.50
Napoletano’s Pantheon, Rome ITALY

This was definitely rum-y, but I really liked it! The rum flavor wasn’t too over-powering, and I liked the texture of the pastry and the cream wasn’t too heavy.

Dried herbs. “Tradition” tasting menu €65
Tordomatto, Rome ITALY

There was just a single swirl of this spaghetti on the plate, but it was a satisfying one! The noodles were more al dente that I’m used to but it worked to hold up to the intense flavor of the sauce and the fine dried herbs on top. It was spaghetti like I’ve never tasted before!

Omg, the dishes just kept getting better and better. This rabbit cacciatora was simply divine. The rabbit meat was so juicy and succulent and the sauce was to die for. These are the times when I love eating!
