I had the pleasure of meeting people who own and operate Ristorante Il Molo in Vicenza, Italy. Some friends in town have cultivated a very nice relationship with them. These friends grow basil on their balcony at home, and have been known to gift the staff of this restaurant with it, just because they can. The basil photograph, above, was done on their balcony in the dawn / daybreak sunlight. The staff had never actually done a full group shot in the entire time they had been open. As a photographer, I couldn’t let that situation go by without asking if I could solve that for them. Yes, given some of the other things we were doing across the day, I just so happened to have had a camera with me.
Then we sat down for the meal. Oh, my. We had the faggotini, pasta with clams, pasta with calamari, swordfish, and beef that was done to perfection, followed by cheesecake, and Limóncello to top it all off.
I’ll tell you about the ravioli and rolled pizza after the jump.
In Marostica, Italy, the folks at Ristorante al Castello Superiore served this cherry and ginger ravioli.
This charming fellow greets you in the doorway, but I digress.
To follow this thought through to the end, I present a rolled pizza from the Ristorante Angelo Peladio.
