The food in Italy was amazing… the freshest cheeses, homemade pastas and decadent pizzas I will ever eat! And I did eat a lot of them 🙂 I want to share with you some of my favorite meals.
Zi’Ntonio’ – Sorrento
This gem of a restaurant made the best pesto pasta I had ever eaten (sorry mom) – and those of you who know me, know I love pesto. We adored this place so much we came back for our last meal, and you guessed it, I ordered the pesto… again. It was so delicious I asked our waiter for the recipe. And this is what he wrote down:
I had no idea what “panna” meant but my best foodie friend figured it out for me – panna cotta, which is a thick cream. We even coincidently sat at the same table the second time we went as the first. This place was the best!
Cooking Tour – Schizzano
This was hands down the best thing we did in Italy! A morning of pizza making, cheese making, and limoncello and olive oil tasting. This tour lasted about five hours with a hotel pickup and dropoff included, and it was the most fun, carefree, educating and joyous experience. For someone who loves learning about culture and food – this was a big hit for me!
Buonocore – Capri
Run – don’t walk – for gelato at Buonocore. Even though you will most likely have to wait in line, you must try this small hole in the wall gelato stand. They makes the most delicious gelato you could ask for. I’m not sure if it was the anticipation, the hot day, or the flavor of gelato we ordered, but everything about this moment in time was amazingly delicious.
My husband and I split a waffle cone (that they make right on the spot for you) with strawberry and lemon gelato. My mouth is watering thinking about it right now. Thank you to a fellow blogger who suggested this place. It pays to do your homework before traveling!
Acqu’ E Sale – Sorrento
When in Italy, you must eat pizza! And a lot of it. I am not ashamed to say that I finished a whole pizza by myself at this delicious restaurant. They had so many topping options, but I chose one with pesto, chicken and tomatoes on it – are you surprised? It was decadent. I had no idea there was such thing as a fried pizza, but there is, and my husband ordered it!
We sat on the rooftop and watched the sun set before our eyes. It was a magical dinner and we left feeling very full and very happy!
