Villa Rosiche – the place to fall in love

If you asked me 5 years ago, I would tell you, the place to fall in love is positively and only New York. However… If someone asked me “What is better than New York?” my answer would be –  a bakery where you can get lost in a bite of cake or dessert, where everything…

Rome

Washington D.C. Day 4 – Italian Gourmet Deli

A place where I went for a lunch once like two years ago. And here comes the realization that out of the two types of people: The ones that love French food and the ones that love Italian food, I am definitely the second type. Nothing is better for lunch than a pile of fries…
