Caruso Ristorante Italiano

car

The first time I walked into Caruso the front of the house bar caught my attention immediately and before the waiters were able to approach me and offer me a table, I was already seated by it. It’s quite rare to find a well-stocked and inviting restaurant bar nowadays, and this automatically reminded me of the countless times I’d visit my friend in Milan and we would indulge on the amazing apperitivo offerings that the whole city seems to participate in at around 6pm onwards.

Chance has made it that the co-owner Dario Gardini is also from Milan and like most authentic restaurants outside of Italy, he learned everything he knows from his Mama. I must of gotten there at the right time because it was close to empty and only one table had patrons on it, all Italian, all loud and all looking like they belonged to the mob.

Vinnie was there biting into a wood oven pizza margherita made with the most delicate mozzarella flown in from Italy, Marcello was double handling a Lamb shank piemonte style with reduced red wine sauce, Vitto seemed to be thoroughly enjoying his Home made ravioloni with spinach ricotta cheese butter and sage and the odd female of the group, probably Alessandra, was quietly relishing her Bucatini Alla Amatriciana.

I chose my table and continued in my Soprano’s fantasies before getting kicked back into reality by delicious food and spot on faithful flavours.

      It should be “I must HAVE gotten” not “I MUST of”

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
