The Wine Lady goes out in Firenze

After a grueling first day of Italian Class and a run around the city, I earned a delicious dinner, so I am out at Golden O for a pile of pasta and some wine. The staff here makes you feel so welcome, and tonight is live jazz, which is great, a loungey style piano and a funky stand up base accompanies a talented singer who is belting out some of my favorites. It is a nice environment for a single gal out for a nice dinner. And, the view across the river Arno of the Uffizi isn't bad either. My, I live a blessed life. As it turns out, after the insalate with prosciutto, sliced so thin that you could see through it, and artichokes cooked confit, which were possibly one of the best things I have ever eaten! I could not handle pasta, "Basta!" I threw in the was a great night:)
