Dinner at Vinando

After a glass of wine at Piazza Farnese, we taxied to Vinando for dinner. This charming restaurant/wine bar is on a quiet cul-de-sac at 23 Piazza Margana, near Piazza Venezia.

Tony (da Roma) joined us for dinner. We began with some delicious first courses: stuffed zucchini with mozzarella and sardines, potato-cheese croquettes, cacio-pepe pasta in a parmigiano shell, and foi gras.

Dessert? Of course! Between us, we sampled almond semifreddo, chocolate mousse, panna cotta with berries, and a chocolate torta with vanilla sauce. Stop reading NOW if you have a sweet tooth!

We all had a great evening. Tony hopped on his scooter, everyone else went back to the hotel, but Brad and I enjoyed a nightcap and a couple more hours of fun in the campo. We can sleep at home!

Yes, I have a sweet tooth but, no, I didn't stop reading.

Everything looks delicious, but especially the desserts.
