Italian Side Dish Menus
- the Contorni

"Contorni - Italian Side Dish Menus" is the seventh in the series of typical Italian Food Menus from breathakingly beautiful Maremma, Italy: unspoilt and truely undiscovered Tuscany and Lazio.

 

This particular menu of traditional Italian dishes is from one of my favourite restaurants in Follonica: La Lanternina 2 Palmieri, situated in the centre of the Gulfo di Follonica, along the seafront in Pratorantieri.
