2006 Trip - Italy - Lake Como - Albergo Plinio Ristorante

Saturday 5-20-06

After checking into our room, we walked just a block down the lakefront from Albergo Lenno to have a glass of wine outside while we waited for the restaurants to open at 7 pm.


The one we chose was recommended by our hotel, Albergo Plinio Ristorante, just a block from our hotel. We sat outside under kind of an arbor covering the dining area. Even though it was raining off and on, we were protected. Kind of neat.


Tanya was our waitress, and she had just come back from three months in the US to learn better English. She stayed with relatives in Hanford, close to Fresno CA. She was a hoot!


No antipasti tonight - soup for both of us - a minestrone for Bill and asparagus for me - both great. We also agreed on an entree - veal. Bill had his in a wine sauce, and mine was in a lemon sauce.

Two sides - one house vegetables and one order of french fries. Every restaurant here seems to serve french fries as their potato choice - very good too, not greasy at all. American restaurants could take lessons.

For dessert we had a cheese plate with three large hunks of local cheeses. They were so big we took about half home to eat on our balcony the next night. House red wine and water - total cost 66E.

We even had a little ducky friend join us from the nearby lake.


Surprise! Surprise! About 11 pm or so we heard noise outside our room and opened the drapes to some spectacular fireworks out on the water! Wow! Have to check that out tomorrow!

Your photos look great. And I can't wait to hear about the fireworks.

That's so funny that there was a duck hanging out at the restaurant! I will have to check out Lenno the next time I stay on Lake Como.
