Today our friends Leah and Joe came to Florence. It is so fun to see familiar faces over here! They got in around lunch time and had an early afternoon tour, so we had to think of a quick and easy lunch place that was located between their hotel and their tour. Obviously I wanted it to be extremely delicious as well. We decided Eataly would work well.
We ordered two pizzas and a pasta (and wine, of course). We figured this would be quickest and easiest to share. We rarely see these two, so we were so busy catching up, I didn’t capture all of the details of exactly what we ordered. The first pizza was sausage, tomatoes and some kind of creamy cheese. The cheese was incredible, I wish I remembered which type of cheese it was.
The second pizza was a margherita pizza with fresh buffalo mozzarella. The cheese melted into the pizza and almost created a creamy sauce.
Lastly, we ordered the pasta di terra. Every day they have a pasta di terra (land) and pasta di mare (sea). The pasta was huge rigatoni served with a ragu of some sort. It was all very delicious and an amazing treat for such a quick lunch!
