- What did you do this weekend? - Martine and I went for a walk around town, and we discovered a little Italian restaurant hidden in a narrow street behind the town hall. Their storefront doesn't look like much, but believe me, it's worth the trip! The food was delicious: the chef, who is originally from Milan, knows exactly what he's doing. I've never eaten such tasty arancini and Martine still hasn't got over her pasta carbonara. Moreover, the waiters were all warm and welcoming, and the prices were more than reasonable! You'll come with us next time!
