Proudly (half) Italian

Last night the Ogilvy Cape Town PR ladies and one gentle PR man celebrated a fabulous year of uber-PR-ness at Il Leone Mastrantonio in Cape Town.

In all honesty, I’m a rather fussy Italian restaurant diner based solely on the fact that I actually know what good Italian food should taste and look like, and I barely ever eat out at an Italian restaurant because of my fussiness.

Having said that, however, last night was delicious – grazie, Il Leone!

The melanzane alla parmigiana starter was orgasmic, the gnocchi with Gorgonzola were stinky (in oh such a good way) and divine, and my filetto – which was done to perfection – topped with black pepper sauce was … *sigh* … I’m still trying to find the appropriate adjective for it … fabzilicious!

Dessert consisted of a crepe of sorts (had no idea us “I-ties” made crepes…but hey…no worries!) drizzled with a hazelnut chocolate sauce, accompanied by a scoop of creamy (what tasted like homemade) vanilla ice cream *heavenly* and slivers of fresh fruit.

*licks lips*

Word to the wise, when in Cape Town do as the Capetonians do and get yourself to Il Leone Mastrantonio.

Bon appetito!
