If you love coffee, …seafood, cheese,
and carbohydrates, …
…then you’ll love eating your way across southeastern Italy.
Unfortunately, Linda does not drink cappuccino and vehemently dislikes shellfish of all kinds. The only thing that kept her from returning skinnier, was the carb laiden rich Italian pastries,
and pasta, and Linda’s all time favorite, sweet creamy gelato.
And the only thing that kept any of them coming back heavier, was the combination of perspiring in the hot August sun, and the frequent walking throughout the hilly streets of Gaeta.
Among the several evenings of Italian dining, a few stand out,
The Dutch Pub on Independence https://www.facebook.com/thedutchpubgaeta/about/?entry_point=page_nav_about_item&tab=overview was highly recommended by several Gaeta experts. The lack of air conditioning almost made it someplace we were going to pass up, however, when we discovered the little tables nestled in the cobblestoned side alley, we sank into a genuine European al fresco dining experience.

was so wonderful, that we returned for a second night.
Linda is in search of a recipe to recreate The Pasta Fagioli with a side of Foccia experience.
