Special Birthday Lunch

For Earl's birthday lunch we opted for the 6 course tasting menu at La Grotta just outside of Montepulciano. We dined outside in a lovely garden just outside the old stables. Interesting, because our room in Sorrento was formerly the stables. We drank a terrific bottle of Vino Nobile Riserva after they poured a glass of local white. Perfectly settled the stomach after the ride.

Scooby Snack - Roasted Eggplant & Zucchini

Asparagus & Pecorino Crema

Crostini & Duck Liver Pâté

Papp'all Pomodoro

Ravioli di Picione

Beef Brasato & Spinaci

Dessert Trio - Gelato di Caffe, Semifreddo Croqante, Torte Cioccolata
