Pace Ristorante in Milan, Italy

Milano - Pace RestaurantWhenever our friend, Giovanni, suggests a restaurant in his home town, we are like little kids in a candy store – only this candy store has grown up treats! Recently we were on “Spring Break” in Milan, Italy, and got to spend time over dinner with our dear friend, Giovanni. Now I know that “Spring Break” is typically NOT celebrated in October, but just bear with me, as this will all make sense in the next few blog posts that you read…so, back to dinner…

Pace Ristorante was a delight to behold, as we were guided down the staircase to our waiting table. Our server, who was attentive and very informative, brought us the perfect wine so we could relax and enjoy the tastes of Autumn.

First up – polenta with porcini mushrooms and stuffed squash blossoms…needless to say, we licked cleaned our plates.

Now, the hard part: which of all of those wonderous dishes should we partake of tonight?

Easy for me – my love is Spaghetti alla Vongole. Since those sweet little clams just don’t exist in the US of A, this is my “go to” dish in Italy.

Hubby got a plate of pappardelle with porcini and a “dark” sauce that was out of this world delish.

Giovanni stuck with filet of beef – perfectly cooked and tender beyond belief.

Of course, what dinner is complete without dessert, you ask? Well, this one called for sharing of not one, but TWO desserts…yes, we cleaned our plates again…

And our server, who was so attentive to us? Out comes the Limoncello and Mirto, which we had not ever previously tasted. As he mixed the two together in one glass and we savored the creation, the flavors combined to make our taste buds sing such a happy tune!

In case you don’t believe me, here is the proof that we left no crumbs behind.

  1. You know you’re killing me right? Tough decision but I think I’d be with you on the Spaghetti alla Vongole.

    We had Mirto in Sardinia. I had not thought of teaming it with Limoncello.
