We should not have ordered our first course which was a pasta dish even though the pasta and sauces are so light. Some had spinach and goat cheese ravioli, Tom had tagliatelle with wild boar, and I had tagliatelle with fresh tomatoes and olives.
Then came the next course. We had ordered 'family style' servings of their famous gnocchi frittos. A deep-fried gnocchi-dough dumpling, served with platters of cold cuts, cheeses, and other goodies (i.e., applesauce, chili sauce, etc.). Those dumplings are so yummy. I was told this particular dish is from the Modena region where Pavarotti lived . . . and look at photos of the late Pavarotti!
I would have taken more photos of the food trays but I was too busy eating! The desserts were skipped but some splurged on a limoncello before moving away from the table. When in Milan, Gnoccho Fritto is a must culinary stop! I'm looking forward to our next visit when I know how and what to order . . . yums.
After we ate the feast following yesterday's "we're not eating for another week!" statement, we walked along the canal again because it was Street Market Day. They close the small street along both sides of the canal for an outdoor antique market on Sundays.
I decided to focus on the manual typewriters . . .
But then the telephones yelled at me to take their photo!
It didn't take long for the mannequins to catch my eye . . .
That's it for tonight. Tomorrow, we embark on our 4-day adventure along the Italian and southern French coast of the Mediterranean Sea. We expect to stay in Saint-Raphael and in Saint-Tropez the next 3 nights, and drive back to Milan on Thursday.
