Enoteca Vespaio

This weekend we headed down to our old neighborhood for lunch. We had a craving for some Enoteca Vespaio. Actually, we had a craving for one particular dish on their menu. Suppli!

Suppli are breaded, fried balls of risotto that have a piece of cheese stuffed into them. So when you cut into them, they are a hot, gooey mess. They come covered in red sauce and they are heavenly. We got two orders -- one for us, one for the kids!

Oh, we got some other stuff too. Margherita pizza with tons of fresh basil...

Pasta for the kids...Olivia preferred to eat hers one strand at a time.

I just liked this picture of Jackson. He looks like he's in the middle of telling a funny story...which he usually is. 

For dessert, we ordered macarons. Aren't they cute? These French cookies (yep, French cookies at an Italian restaurant, don't ask me) are delicious. They just melt in your mouth.

Tony sort of looks like he wants to kill his macaron, but he is really examining it closely to try to figure out how it can be so awesome.

Of course the kids approved.

Have you had macarons? I'm dreaming of them now. They sound like they are really difficult to make, but I feel like I have to try.

  1. Love how everyone is eating the macarons like oreos--splitting the cookie in half and licking the creamy center. Adorable.
