Caffe Positano on the left side of the hill of Positano .... or on the right side, depending on your perspective .... was a super fab seafood place where we sat in the edge of the balcony one evening and watched the town lights of Positano come to life. Eating a lot of frutti di mare and I had a wonderfully delicious pasta with lobster. YUM. Only surpassed by incredible angel hair pasta with lobster at Max Ristorante a few nights later. The view ...... what do you think ?
However, we also knew that we were close to the Chianti wine region so a day trip was planned and the son of my cousin Barbara, Andrea, was our guide for the day. We visited a private vineyard, San Gimignano and then onto Certaldo. After a ride to the old part of town in Certraldo, on the funicolare, we wandered around a small and picturesque village that is actually contained within the walls of an old castle.
Dinner at a restaurant overlooking the surrounding valley and vineyard was very idyllic indeed. At Ristorante L’Antica Fonte I tasted one of the best ravioli I have ever eaten.
Do you think this is pretty ?
