I’m grateful for faces that light up everyone around them! After our opening last night of Idomeneo we celebrated in a nearby restaurant, Gastroteca. If my dish of risotto with virgin olive oil and carpaccio di pulpo was any indicator, they’ve found the recipe for perfection. I’m pretty sure it’s all this man’s fault! I walked in the door, and was just immediately lifted up with his smiling face (and his not-dissimilar resemblance to the great Pavarotti!) He was as "simpatico" as he looks, cooked us this wonderful meal, and left me with a face I’ll never forget! (I hear he sings, too!)
