Dinner at La Cantinetta Ristorante
@ Via Roma 33, Barolo, Piedmont, Italy (7/4/2016)

After my wonderful day visiting Cantina Bartolo Mascarello and the Giuseppe Rinaldi Winery, I went back to La Cantinetta for a simple, relaxing dinner … with no wine. I had had a lovely lunch there earlier in the day between my winery visits.

The food here is quite good. All I could manage at the end of this long, wonderful day was a pasta dish and a light dessert.

The menu posted outside:

A romantic evening by myself.

Bread and water is a good way to start after a long day.

Meat-stuffed Ravioli “al plin” with butter and sage. Oh God, this was good.

A local dog stops by for a drink:

Then he stops by my table to ask me to say hi to my dog Sam.
Apparently they are friends on Dogbook.

Bunet (aka Bonet, aka il Bončt): A pudding made with eggs,
sugar, milk, cocoa, rum, and Amaretto cookies as a crust.

Fresh cherries with the check:


The next morning began with a visit to the Cappellano Winery.
