I started with a small bottle of local red wine and gluten free focaccia bread drizzled with olive oil
and dusted with freshly chopped herbs. Yum! The menu was loaded! It took me a while but I finally settled on the gluten free gnocchi. I have not had gnocchi for more than 5 years. The last time was a gnocchi and Gorgonzola cheese dish I put together in our little dorm kitchen at Buffalo State. That was real good, but this was even better! I ate my gnocchi slowly and deliberately, not uttering a word for blocks of time. Awesome...
For dessert I ordered the gluten free tiramisu. It was drizzled with a cream cheese sauce and covered in cocoa powder. I thought the presentation could use a little work but the taste was out of this world. When I left the restaurant I was drunk with food more than wine. It actually heart to move for an hour or so. The remainder of my stay was filled with being a tourist, going to some of the historical areas, eating great gluten free meals, snacking on gelato, sipping cappuccinos and watching the world do its thing. Italy... We're far from done... I'll be back.
