Luxury lunch - Olio E Convivium

Olio E Convivium had been recommended in my guide book as a place to get nice edible pressies which was the reason why we headed there. Once we had arrived, we also realised that there was a restaurant adjoining the shop and seeing as it was time for lunch, we decided to grab some grub. The idea was that we would go for something light but it was not to be.

One of the specials on offer was taglierini with white truffle - a pretty pricey dish but the excitement of being on holidays (and cliche of "eating whats in season") took over so I plumped for it. Very simple but absolutely delicious......word of warning though, you will probably not have to eat for the rest of the day as it is mucho rich and sits on one's tummy forever!! :)
 JD had roast wild boar with apples, chestnut and bacon - it really was as good as it looks on the plate!

  Chocolate souffle - good taste but a little overcooked
