We had a wonderful early dinner at Trilussa, an Italian restaurant in Cathedral City, with Slow Travel friends, Nancy (Nancyhol) and Bill. After a glass of wine or prosecco, we made our menu selections. Conversation was lively about travel, Italy, pets, wine, and life in general!
We started with antipasti and salads. I had bruschetta with garlic and olive oil, Brad had carpaccio (gearing up for Italy), and Nancy and Bill had two beautiful salads. Nancy's was chocked full of gorgonzola and walnuts. Nancy brought their LAST bottle of vino rosso from Montalcino to share with us! This was even more lovely, since I MET Nancy and Bill, last year on the street in Montalcino!
Our entrees were pasta for the ladies, and veal for the guys. I had linguini carbonara (my favorite in the desert outside of my own), and Nancy had lasagna, "fatta di casa".
Brad had veal Limone, and Bill had his veal smothered in mushrooms.
Yes, we had a little room left. It was 105 degrees outside, and we needed to "practice"
the daily gelato habit, so be sure to check out our refreshing desserts!
We enjoyed great company, good food and wine, and made it home in time for the LAST episode of the Sopranos! A wonderful evening!
