Warning! Before you read this, quell your grumbling stomach. This post will have you craving an Italian feast.
Italians do eat a lot of pasta. We began each meal, lunch and dinner, with an antipasto. This slow, but filling pace continued with a first plate (almost always a tantalizing twist on pasta), a second plate (a gamut of seasoned meat), and finally, dessert!
The crowning end, a dopopranzo, or a lingering after meal espresso. La bella vita.
The good life.
