|A simple lunch at Er Buchetto, with a glass of vino bianco.|
So many times I have tried to put into words that feeling you get in Italy. That midday buzz after washing down your lunch with a light and refreshing vino sfuso. That bounce in your step that makes everything around you feel different. That is the exact feeling I get everytime return to Er Buchetto for lunch. The only thing they serve here is Porchetta. You can have it in a sandwich (as shown above), or in a portion with bread on the side. If your lucky you can find a plate of artichokes or some olives. But porchetta is their thing and they have been doing it since 1890. Just cheap, honest, simple, delicious stuff served quite literally in a hole in the wall (''Er Buchetto'', is the little hole in roman dialect). This is the first place I ate in Italy, where I was reccomended to come here for lunch back in 2004. I return everytime I'm in the city.
