On Sunday we revisited the charming village of Borghetto on the River Mincio in Northern Italy.
We decided to have lunch at Antica Locanda Mincio, a restaurant we return to every year or so because the food is truly outstanding.
The lunch was our reward for punishing ourselves with home-cooking for over two months. (My cooking isn’t all that bad – it just lacks variety.)
Everything on the menu looked good. Choosing which dish to order, knowing that all choices would be great, is the kind of dilemma I like to have. We began with two excellent pasta dishes.
Next, we had fish: salmon and tuna, both of which had been cooked “alla brace di legna” which translates as wood-fired grill. Verdict: delicious.
Finally, just to be extra-indulgent and to celebrate the start of spring and because we have been soooo good with all our eating at home, we ordered not ONE dessert to share but TWO to share. Good move. They were sublime!
Afterwards we walked around Lake Garda for a few hours. I don’t think I need to explain why.
