... pastries (including warm crisp Nutella filled) and cakes including a great cheesecake with pastry base, topped with a layer of not too sweet lemon honey, then ricotta before being baked. NOM. All this food was set before us with Grandma smiling, giving animated orders to the waitress and fussing, I think she is the cook.
We checked out feeling as full as our suitcases and asked Luca if he could order us a taxi; instead he insisted on taking ...
