Trip to Europe (Piemonte-Italy-Fall 2011)...Lunch at Casa Nicolini in Barbaresco

(Dan 9)
Our Barbaresco day was going well. For lunch, we went to Casa Nicolini (Strada Nicolini Basso, 34 Franzione Tre Stelle, Barbaresco). We were originally going to a different restaurant, but because it was All Saints Day (November 1), it was closed just as many other restaurants and shops in the area.

This restaurant had the breath-taking view of vineyards in Barbaresco.

Our time was kind of pushing, so we had a quick lunch. For wine, we had 2010 Azienda Agricola VIGIN, Dolcetto d’Alba.

I had Carpaccio di rolata di con valeriana e aceto balsamico (rolled rabbit carpaccio with lettuce & balsamico)…the rabbit was lean and good. Then, the pasta course was, again, Agnolotti burro e salvia (tiny ravioli with butter and sage sauce).

I was wondering, when I would be able to eat vegetables.
