“GREATEST SUMMER TRUFFLES EVER!!!”"”"
We had another great plate of “Taglierlini with Truffle” the other day at Bar Pitti.
The Black Summer Truffles from Umbria have been so good this year, that they taste almost as good as the “White Alba Truffles” of the Autum and Winter Season.
It was quite funny when my friend Pat “P” and I took owe first bites, i said, “Patty Boy,” these Truffles are as good as the “Whites.” He agreed, and the words were barely out our mouths when Govanni came over and aske us how our Pasta was and added that they were “Stupenious” this year. “Just as good as the White Truffles.” We told him that we just said the same thing, and at about a fourth of the price at $23.00 a plate, they were an absolute “Bargain.”
We had a plate of Vitello Tonnato and “Trippa Fiorentina.” both were tasty as ever.
If you haven’t had any of the Norcia Summer Truffle, run on down to “Bar Pitti” and get a plate. “they’re Amazing!!!!” We drank a bottle of “Macari Sauvignon Blanc,”
as everyone seems to be doing these days and we were as “Happy as Peas in a Pod.”
