Day two began with our mercato trip and I made a wonderful salad for lunch
Since we were so good at lunch (really Linda?), we headed out for a late dinner and ended up at our new favorite restaurant, Il Caminetto. The food was delicious as was the house wine, yes I said vino bianco at every restaurant and this one was exceptional for 5 Euro. The most paid for a glass of wine - so far. The food, service and atmosphere were fabulous.

How do you top that? After that meal, the last thing we wanted to do was eat big. When we returned this afternoon, I had salad and we grabbed a sandwich for Jim. When we headed out for our last meal, we knew it would be small. Well, we said small and did happen to find a great place that was bustling with people called, Maestro Ciliegia Ristorante & Pizzeria. We thought pizza and chose a pizza bianco with of course, prosciutto and mushrooms as well. My house wine tonight was actually prosecco and we, twist my arm, decided to share an appetizer called the Antipasto di Casa. We thought green and veggies and surprise, we received a plate of delicious stracchino cheese and prosciutto! But along with it came this special bread that once again, Jim proclaimed his favorite. Needless to say we could not eat the pizza so we took it to go for lunch on our way to Verona and Jim got dessert.
We really need to focus on eating just a little bit healthier for the next two weeks...
