Bovio Ristorante, La Morra, Italy, Easter Sunday, 2014

Posted on

On Easter Sunday this year, we shared perhaps the most amazing meal we’ve all ever had at Bovio Ristorante in La Morra, Italy. From the astounding views to the incredible wine (list) to the second-to-none food this place had everything anyone would want in an exquisite dining experience. A small glimpse of our five course, four hour lunch follows.

L’Osteria dell’Arco, Alba, Italy, 2014

Posted on

Highlights from our meal at L’Osteria dell’Arco in Alba, Italy on April 19th. Their sister restaurant in Bra, Italy, Osteria del Boccondivino, shares space with the headquarters of the Slow Food Movement. Unfortunately, we didn’t take notes everywhere we ate, so I can’t quite tell you what each of these dishes are. We have learned from this mistake and will try to relate that information better in the future. Until then…
