Watching others receive their food, I couldn't help but notice the rich and creamy nature of the gnocchi formaggio. The sauce, a dense white cream, would stretch in strings from saucepan to plate.

So we settled on an al dente rigatoni with little tomatoes in olive oil. Two and half hours later, we strolled back to our little hotel feeling much more comfortable in our surroundings, confident that we could communicate well enough to fill our bellies, get directions and buy bus tickets. Perhaps we shouldn't have been so confident. Sunday involved much walking, chasing down wi-fi access and trying, with no success, to get our cell phones sorted out. In fact, as I write this on Monday, we've still got to figure that out.more
