One dish I had vowed to order again upon return was the raviolo di ricotta. What's not to like about cheese and a soft-cooked egg wrapped in pasta and floating in browned butter? For one thing, it's a tad small for the price - $16. You can, however, take comfort in the richness of the sauce which makes for great dipping of the bread at the table.

Up next for me, the porchetta della casa which is essentially pork nestled in pork belly. Extremely decadent and...let's just say very caloric...but sooooooo delicious if you like this type of thing. I didn't eat the entire dish because it's possible my food coma might have lasted into the new year. However I did take the remaining pork belly home and it became part of a seafood dish for the grill (see Kitchen Chronicles)
