The pleasure of drinking coffee


When in Rome do as the Romans do, if you wish to taste a real Italian coffee, head to a BAR. Ask foran espresso. I take mine with a little milk and therefore I ask for a macchiato (literally means stained), add your sugar, brown sugar or sweetener and enjoy the brief but intense pleasure! Remember never ask for a latte; you will be served a glass of pure milk and that is it. Here are my pics of my recent experience. Of course I repeated it many times but I never get tired of drinking a good coffee especially after lunch! Enjoy

Meeting up with old friends


After 9 months I finally had the time to go back to my hometown. I was very excited to visit my family and I thought of organizing an event to meet friends I had not seen in a while. Only a few came over but it was a nice, fun evening, fill with laughter, Italian beer and different pizzas. We started the evening with an apéritif at Volpi bar, with a prosecco and many little yummy snacks such as olives and croutons topped with diverse sauces. Then, we headed to Peppe all’archetto, people say he makes the best pizza around Nettuno and surroundings. The place is so old that the kitchen is located opposite the pizzeria and the waiter has to cross over to reach the venue. It is just literally opposite and takes less than a minute. We had pizza Margherita the classic, pizza with seafood, pizza with shrimps and rocket, crostino with parma ham and capricciosa… Delicious… we then went to stroll around the medieval town and as it is not yet summer it was quite and peaceful…. and eventually we ended up eating warm croissants and bombe filled with nutella; a bliss.
