When I arrived around 6:00 P.M. the restaurant was not crowded, and, by the time I finished my meal, I was the only one there. The afternoon dinner crowd had left by then, and the nighttime supper crowd had not yet arrived.
I started with a very good soup of roasted tomatoes, green olives and goat cheese.
For my main course I had something that was a mixture of cuisines... fettucine Stroganoff.
For dessert I had panna cotta. I had heard of it before but had never tasted it. I had it in my mind that it was made with bread since the Italian word for bread is "pane". In fact it is sort of an Italian version of flan. This panna cotta was flavored with strawberries and amaretto and was very good.
