La Falterona is where I had my first “Eat, Pray Love” food experience, as I call it. It’s that especially delicious moment when you take the first bite of your food, and whatever you’re eating consumes your body from the inside out. Your your eyes roll back into your head and the only sound that you can manage to make is “mmm…” as you enjoy your meal and never want it to end. This “foodgasm” as one could call it, first happened with my entree: a filet of white fish served with roasted cherry tomatoes and sliced potatoes. One bite of this fish with its herb and citrus under tones and I was hook’d! It melts in your mouth in the most beautiful way just like any flaky white fish should when cooked correctly. Then the earthy and sweet flavor of the herb roasted cherry tomato pops in your mouth right before the salty starchiness from the potato hits you. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water! We also tried the eggplant appetizer and Spaghetti Alla Carbonara and wow…who knew eggs could mix that well with pasta?! Needless to say, we’re completely hook’d on La Falterona and cannot wait to go back. Take our word for it and check it out for yourself!
