Just because I was in France, didn’t mean that I had to eat only French food. The night before I had couscous and tonight I was planning to have Italian. Hannah has told me that she has never been disappointed by any of the Italian Restaurants found over the bridge, over the Isere.
So after a day of walking in the woods, we built up a pretty hefty appetite and our pores were screaming “Carbohydrates! Carbohydrates!”…well, you can’t beat pasta for that.
The service in La Florentine was very good, the waitress very patient as I practiced my French while ordering (I have now found out the best way to order table water was with Homer Simpson’s classic D’oh! quote).
We were quickly served and as usual the produce was excellent. It was nice to have really good salad again. I don’t know, salad in the UK just isn’t like that in the continent. And as the main course, tagliatelle carbonara. I adore carbonara. I adore it even more when done with the egg running over the pasta. This was followed by a very delicious creamy Pannacotta and to end the meal, cafe noir.
The setting was very rustic and relaxed with beautiful stone walls and a pizza oven burning not far away, keeping you warm. No better way to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.
