I had lunch outside today.
It was 60 degrees F in Florence!
The sun was shining, the sky was blue, the city is decked out for the holidays and a friend and I decided to lunch at Cibreo Caffè . I’ve been wanting to try this famous restaurant and I’m glad I had the chance today.
To sit outside, having lunch in the sun, on December 12. Will wonders never cease?!
I did keep my coat on during lunch, but I probably didn’t need to really.
These aren’t my pictures, but I borrowed some from the web for illustrations.
To be completely honest, I didn’t love the food. It was first quality and beautifully prepared and presented. I know Cibreo has a great reputation, but I like the old classics better than the updated menus that are now found all over town. I guess I’m quite old-fashioned!
For example, one of the suite of appetizers they shared with us was a scoop of fresh sausage, crudo. In other words, a scoop of sausage meat uncooked. My friend said it was good spread on Tuscan bread, but I just took his word for it. :-)
