Il Boccalino – Fresh pasta by a chef couple

Here is my favourite local place where I can eat fresh and oh so delicious homemade pasta. Il Boccalino’s owners are a pretty gourmet couple. When you go into the place, a friendly women will welcome you. Her husband will be in the kitchen.

First, I recommend you start with burrata and a glass of wine. They serve one brand of wine. You cannot find other kinds but that one is pretty good.

When you choose your drink and order your meal, they bring a little parmesan cheese plate too. If you prefer meat rather than pasta, they are very good at cooking beef too. But I would recommend the fresh pasta with gorgonzola cheese or tomato sauce. If you like seafood, they have mussel and shrimp pasta as well.

After your meal, drink an espresso and if you have time, you can talk with this couple. You will have fun while talking to them and listening to their old memories.
