The next day, we slept late, then decided to relieve ourselves of our rental car. After that fiasco (which resulted in me using my driver’s license to rent a car for an American couple who had forgotten their license!) we had another AMAZING meal, this time at L’Antica, a beautiful wisteria-covered, geranium-decked restaurant that was noticed by David and turns out was Michelin-rated and Rick-Steves approved.
It was VERY FINE dining, which started with sparkling rose, fresh flatbreads, and olives.
The food was art, from David’s fried, stuff radicchio with a sweet, syrupy vinegar reduction, to my fried red prawns with sardine sauce, to the most HEAVENLY ravioli with shellfish I could possibly imagine…it was so ridiculous and so good.
