In my excitement to blog about our Tuesday dinner, (trying to go somewhat chronologically through the week in Montisi) I completely forgot to write about Monday night. The Slow Trav gang, Jerry and Paul, Sandi, Gail and John, and Brad and I went to Pienza for dinner at Latte di Luna. This is a favorite of mine (my fifth or sixth visit).
It was a lovely evening to sit outside and enjoy the Tuscan specialties.
I started with pici in chingale sauce (and forgot to take a picture). The entrees were all delicious. Here are photos of the crispy pork, the coniglio (rabbit) with olives, and the duck. Jerry and Sandi had some good-looking steaks, and Gail enjoyed her eggplant parm.
Here we are, lingering over wine, with lots of laughter going on. How amazing is it really, that we met through an internet website, have visited together at various GTGs, all traveled to Savannah, and are now in a villa in Italy! Cheers to Slow Travel for bringing us together!
Brad and I have a tradition in Pienza. We always take a kissing photo at the corner with the sign "Via dell' Amore". So here is our 2008 version.
