For our last tantalizing stop in Five Days, Five Meals, we pull up to a place we’ve driven by many times, as it’s on the way to Terontola, where our visitors come in on the train, a place called La Tufa. It’s in a town called Ossaia (which has a little history thanks to Lago Trasimeno battle star, Hannibal), and has one of those signs that for some reason catches the eye: cute font, welcoming swing, intriguing name. Every time we drove past, either Nat or I would say “we’ll have to stop there sometime.” But it’s over the hill, just far enough to be out of “wonder where we’ll eat tonight as it’s 7 pm and we haven’t decided yet” style planning. The other night though, we a not-last-minute plan, and ended up at La Tufa. And, we were glad we made the trip, cause it was as inviting inside as the sign would lead you to believe. Nat also got to realize a long-standing dream or having a pizza with French fries on it:
Five Days, Five Meals. Hopefully your shirt isn’t too covered with drool.
