Amalfi, Trattoria da Gemma, packing|
Another lazy morning with breakfast by Elena.
Ben walked into Positano to visit the ATM.
About 11:00 a.m. we all walked into Positano to catch the noon boat to Amalfi, and we arrived
(like clockwork) at 12:35 p.m. in Amalfi and walked the few blocks to
Trattoria da Gemma
for another gorgeous lunch.
Several of us ordered the special carpaccio: tuna, Pezzogna (a local small white fish),
and Gamberonitti (tiny local shrimp). The chef sent us a special course in between our antipasti
and our main courses: very lightly fried Paranza (very small fish, perhaps 4-5cm long -- Paranza is the name of the boat used to catch them) with a few sardines in the mix.
Max ordered a lovely whole poached Pezzogna.
With lunch we enjoyed a
2004 Viticoltri De Conciliis Antece
We took the SITA bus back to Villa Maura -- with all the stops it took about the same time as the boat!
After packing we enjoyed our last Elena meal -- including freshly-caught local sardines -- along with
a bottle of
2006 Feudi di San Gregorio Fiano di Avellino Campanaro.
