... was filmed in The Godfather before heading to dinner. We sat at a table that overlooked the ocean and enjoyed some table side serenading. Well, I enjoyed it, at least; the guys looked pretty annoyed. I haven't been able to get the song "Volare" out of my head since! We continued our stroll after dinner and stopped for gelato. So good!
