Ristorante DA CARLINO, Italy
February 14-19, 2014
My daughter and I found our way to, Ristorante DA CARLINO. We didn't know it at the time, but our lives were about to be changed! We slowly walked by the ristorante and it seemed empty except for a women sitting at a lone table. She saw us, stood up and walked to the door then waved us inside all while saying, "prego, prego." She sat us at a table (soon to become our table) and immediately we discovered we did not understand eachother. So, after many tries we came to some understanding she would cook for us whatever she wanted, the fun began and lasted for the next 3 days.
We learned her name was Maria, her husband, Enzo, began by bringing us fresh olives from the region, great red wine and homemade bread. The courses came slowly and Enzo would say, "paino", take your time. Every course, from the mussels and clams to the mouth watering pasta dishes were out of this world. Maria would come out and tell us about the dishes and Enzo would help translate. I played my banjo for them and fun was had by all.
I will drive across Italy again to visit my friends and and enjoy the best Italian food I have ever experienced prepared by Maria..
