I grew up in the countryside and I often had to go to the small bakery. The only choice to get groceries in that village. Entering the store the first thing I always recognised was the sign between the shelves, which quoted: “Old bread isn’t hard, no bread that is hard”. Not necessary to say what that means.
We are lucky to have fresh bread every day, but you must have luck to get a table at Cotidiano’s and not to wait too long. Actually I’m not a fan of restaurants, which are hyped, filled with hipsters and the bussi-bussi-society (bussi = kiss). Surprisingly and what I did not expect was the excellent service. We had to stand in a long queue, but the waitresses and waiters were very friendly and kept us updated on when the next table was ready for us.
After ordering breakfast and coffee it only took them five minutes to bring both at the same time. That’s world record – thumbs up! Additionally they had bread from my favorite bakery Hofpfisterei.
My conclusion: expect the unexpected and be part of the bussi-bussi-society!
