Sometimes on a European holiday you just want to spontaneously find a fun, lively, casual restaurant in a square with lots of atmosphere, preferably with some music playing, where you can sit outside and linger over wine and food. Fashion It is a good choice if you’re in that mood, with particularly friendly waiters who ask everyone where they are from and take pleasure in chatting to the guests, even if the service is a bit slow.
My partner Owl and I enjoyed a heavy red (14%) inky dark bottle of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (2011) with our traditional Italian food, which began with bruschetta miste (truffle, cheese, tomatoes and anchovies) and pomodoro. Our mains were quattro station pizza (actually mixed into one season as the ‘seasons’ were not divided on the pizza!) and spinach and ricotta ravioli with truffle cream.
The highlight was our shared dessert (torta caprese) – a moist, amazing chocolate and almond cake.
