Alba - A Lazy Day

Hotel Langhe has a buffet breakfast - not lavish but fine.

We drove to the centro storico (city center) to look around and scout out a restaurant for dinner, but it was during the mid-day closing, so most stores and restaurants were closed.

Didn't do too much for the rest of the day - Bill has been catching up on his reading and has finished four books so far. He's a pretty slow reader, so that is a lot of reading for him.

We saw a pizzeria a couple of blocks from our hotel that we could walk to for dinner, and it turned out to be a great choice. It was called La Pignatta. I found their website - only in Italian though.

Bill had a Shrimp Scampi Pasta - the shrimp were whole, with heads included. It was good, he said, but a lot of work.

I had my first Italian pizza, with tomatoes and arugula. Yum! Half a carafe of their house white and half a carafe of their house Dolcetto.
