Gelato, Fiorentina Bistecca and other foods, Italy 2013 意大利自由行

This will be the last post of my Italy trip. When one visit to Italy, can't avoid to take some good gelato ( Italian word for ice cream ) . We took gelato almost everyday during the trip..


 
Our first gelato was at Colloseum, bought from this type of stall which you can see them everywhere especially at tourist spots..

 
The taste wasn't impressed, but fall in love with pistachio flavour, then we keep order the same pistachio flavour for next gelato purchase ^_^..



 
We saw a long q at a gelato shop near Vatican city..The shop name is Old Bridge gelato 



 
And this gelato was the best amongst all that we had tried. and also the cheapest that we have paid..If I could recall, we paid Euro 2 for two scoops of gelato..

 
I had the strawberry and pistachio flavours.  I was like eating the real strawberry, so fresh ..
 


 
Another gelato shop at Rome..



still not as nice as that one we had at Old Bridge 


 This shop is located at Firenze / Florence..

 
This was the most expensive gelato we had during the trip, it was because the special ice cream cone with chocolate coating and nuts..
 
Last pistachio gelato at Cinque Terre Monterosso

 
This was the restaurant we had the first dinner at Firenze/Florence..went to try Firenze famous Bistecca (T-bone steak )

 
took this photo while on the way to the restaurant, another very Italian feel of scene..,

 
The name of this restaurant is Trattoria Bordino 



 
Creamy spaghetti with thinly white truffle,quite good..

 
Fettuccine 

 
Famous Firenze's Bistecca (T-bone steak) , but we couldn't accept this type of rare and bloody steak (sorry forgot to take the picture after cut ) , like eating a whole cow, LOL..They will not ask you the preference of doneness of the steak, so if you can't take rare steak, don't go to try..
 
 Surprisingly this not good looking and simple spinach veggie dish was our favourite dish from all dishes we ordered..
 
We went to this restaurant at Firenze/Florence after returned from Cinque Terre. Since it was late (around 9.30pm), we simply went to this restaurant to take a light dinner, and this was our first not so  good Italian meal  !!
We ordered Bruschetta (grilled bread with topping as a starter or Antipasto (開胃前菜) . 
The topping on the bread was porcini mushroom and ham. We can't accept how they prepared the porcini mushroom, the gravy tasted like glue !

Creamy Tortellini  with ham

 
Tiramisu was the worst, it was watery with iced water..i guess this was frozen Tiramisu, and they thaw it before serve us..


 
Only this gnocchi tasted nice, but the portion was too small
 
This is my last post of the Italy trip, Thanks for following all these posts..
