This town is incredible!! It is really lively, just like the towns on Elba Island. The buildings and archways, and little houses are fascinating, brightly lit, and filled with tourists. It was a lovely place for a before-dinner walk.
Then, we had the pleasant surprise of a little and popular restaurant, very artsy, walls covered with casual paint and modern paintings. The food was excellent, and very nicely served. The name of the restaurant is "La Taverna dei Boncompagni"
Taverna dei Boncompagni (click right here for their website!)
and here is another link that talks about them.....
While at the table I took photos of my plate and those of my husband's and our friends...here they are:
THIS is an antipasto -- served on a square plate, many delicacies, including gazpacho with shrimp, smoked salmon, and other delicious items
This is MY antipasto, different from the above one...I don't care for mussels, so they brought me this variation, which was excellent.
This is a fish soup, Caciucco, a specialty of the area
This may seem like a repetition of the above, but actually it is another person's plate, amazingly looks just like the top one doesn't it!!!
This was better or almost as good as the chocolate cake. They were both superb!! This was a cold, ice cream cake with pistacchio. And the berry sauce on the side and the cherries on the top......what an experience!!
