What a treat!
We went from the cool, breezy fire pit area inside to the beautiful Italian restaurant, Peppoli. We began with two antipasti plates of fried calamari and artichokes, two plates of burrata with heirloom tomatoes and balsamico, and two boards of assorted salumi with Arneis and prosecco.
Our waitress, Paige, was delightful, and really on the ball. Can you tell we are having a great time?
Here is a sampling of each of our courses: Asparagus and pappa di pomodoro soup:
Pastas included a special of the day, gnocchi with peas, and steak and Sicilian sausage lasagna:
Entrees included grilled chicken, veal milanese, and the veal chop Brad and I shared:
After dinner, we all drove just a couple of minutes down the 17-Mile Drive to Wendy and Rob's beautiful home. They graciously hosted the group for dessert, coffee and grappa tasting! Their charming house, full of travel treasures, was as warm and welcoming as they are! We enjoyed espresso, fruit tarts with fresh whipped cream, an assortment of cookies, and who knew I would like honey grappa??? Another wonderful get-together! Grazie, Wendy and Rob!!!
