As many of you know, and agree, the food in Italy is amazing. I have a soft spot for the cuisine, and a true love for pizza. This post is going back to my trip from December/January in Italy, which I have slightly neglected as of late. On one particular night just before Christmas, we visited Ristorante da Mimi for dinner. The restaurant is located in Sant’ Agata, the pretty little town that straddles the hill between the Bay of Naples and Salerno. The menu consisted of your traditional Italian, ranging from antipasto, fried foods, pasta, pizza, secondi of meat and seafood and desserts.
Starting with the fritti for an appetiser, we were served a mix plate with a mini Pizzette, fried Melanzane stuffed with Mozzarella, Arancini filled with Four Cheeses and fried Mozzarella. I am generally not a big fan of fried foods but these were lovely and crisp and so very addictive.
We then moved on to the mains. Between here and Venice I made a pledge that seafood would be eaten. You have no excuse when you’re located on the beautiful coast, and the fisherman are out every morning bringing back the freshest produce. I went for a beautifully served Scialatelli Pasta with Frutti di Mare (which translates to fruit of the sea). It was served in this wonderful bread bowl, and the sauce was a simple mix of wine, oil, and fresh pomodorini. I also got to try the beautiful Filet of Steak with a Pepper Verde, served on a Bread Tostato. I love the presentation of both, and the serving sizes surely didn’t leave us hungry.
We rolled ourselves out of the restaurant, and into bed. Readying ourselves for another day of exploring the coast.
