Pisacco Milano - Dining Room

Pisacco could have possibly just become my favorite restaurant in Milan. The restaurant is the result of a collaboration between an eclectic group of people including an architect, an art collector, a lawyer and a Michelin-starred chef, and it shows. It’s understated, refined but not stuffy, and the food rocks. The dishes are generally quite […]

Reception - Boscolo Venezia

I don’t usually like classic historical hotels (side note I actually kind of hate new hotels that try and look old), but I feel in love with Boscolo Venezia. I think it’s because historic hotels can feel stiff and stuffy. They can have an unwelcoming aura that makes me feel incredibly conscious of my surrounds. […]

Zipo - Mucche pascolo

One of the great things about Milan is all the awesome things you can do around the city, case in point, Zipo. Zipo is a Slow Food endorsed farm just 30 minutes south of Milan. On the 90 hectares of farmland, Elisa raises free-range cows (that produce some of the best milk I’ve ever tried), […]

Santo Domingo - Building

I’ve been feeling very nostalgic about the Caribbean these past few days, if not weeks. The warm weather, the blue skies, the music, the colors and the food. It made me look over an old post I did about Santo Domingo, which made me realize that I didn’t post half of the awesome pictures I (or “Juan”) […]

roberta sala - la fermata

This has been a long time coming. For a while, I’ve been thinking about starting a new section of my blog dedicated to weddings. I love weddings. My husband once jokingly said I would marry him every year just to throw the party. To be honest—finances and good juju permitting—I would. Anyways, I’ve finally decided […]

I already liked the restaurant: sleek, clean, modern lines, gray color palate, plus wooden tables and lots of cushions that brought warmth to the space. But, after one of the owners, Pier Giulio, came to our table and explained that he (Italian) opened the restaurant thanks to his wife, Lily, (foreigner) I was even more […]

Speck

I love the concept behind the sharing economy. So much so that I’ve been thinking about doing my own home restaurants for over a year now. But then life happens, which in my case meant I inexplicably couldn’t stand long enough to make myself a meal, much less make a meal for a group of […]

Sono Foodie, Flirty Foodie. Inviata speciale al evento “Pure tu vuoi fare lo Chef?”. Scherzi a parte sono andata ad un evento sulla ristorazione circa un mese fa. Devo dire che era veramente molto interessante. A meta’ giornata ero così contenta che stavo pensando… forse anch’io posso aprire un ristorante. Tenete conto che anche se […]
