Scicli was my favourite, but the competition was tough.
And of course there was a delicious lunch of local pasta,
where once again, we had the restaurant to ourselves.
E' stata una giornata d'oro!
Where we ate:
La Grotta is a fabulous little restaurant set into a cave in the side of the mountain behind the main town of Scicli. The food is traditional cucina povera: simple pastas with delicious vegetable sauces topped with roasted breadcrumbs, the poor man's parmesan, as the chef explained.

Just after we left Milan, I was invited to contribute a photo to a travel blog. If you are heading to the northern Italy over the next couple of months, have a look at the links in the following blogpost. There are some great photos showcasing different places to visit in our old 'home town'.
