why the italians deserve their reputation

Because they are capable of producing dishes like the one we ate in a neighborhood osteria in Milan, near our friends' apartment, called La Piola. Everything that came to the table for the four of us was spectacular, but the porcini risotto was just completely out of control in its exquisite deliciousness and intense mushroominess. A true foodgasm.

All the risottos we had on the trip were perfectly cooked, exactly the right texture of soft creamy with a firm bite, even the ones at the wedding. Since when have you ever had good food at a wedding? Same goes for the gnocchi -- fluffy little cloud-pillows robed in cheese. Hot damn.

Viale Abruzzi, 23 (Circonvallazione)

Sadly, we'd left the camera in the friends' apartment during dinner by mistake, so no pictures of the foodgasm. You'll just have to trust me.
