    I was awakened this morning by a noise I could not decifer and I got up to investigate.
    From my balcony I could see several men who were sliding poles through their sails to prepare for windsurfing.
    What I heard were the plastic sails flapping wildly in the wind.
    It was really windy in the early mornings and a thick haze lay over the mountains.
    Several windsurfers took advantage of these perfect conditions to get out on the lake.

    Do not worry that you can not speak the best Italian, somehow you make do and that's the best part of traveling.
    We attracted instant attention because foreigners don't usually find their way there. WooHoo!
    One of the guests approached us and spoke to us to the point of being annoying because my penne Gorgonzola was getting cold. LOL He was anxious to speak English to an American and I must say he spoke beautifully.
    He remarked that I was certainly unusual for thumbing my nose at the usual tourist spots. I do tend to do that I must say.
    We ordered way too much food and had to pack a bag for a box lunch the next day, but it was worth it.
    Two sisters wait the tables. They are total sweethearts.
    They have an Egyptian cook who emigrated to Italy. He was warm and friendly as well.
    You could not want for more attention even if communication was a bit difficult-who cares-have fun and you will enjoy whatever you order and certainly the atmosphere.
    Tell them Gail sent you!

    Favorite Dish: penne gorgonzola
    gnocchi
    swordfish
    tagliatelle
    veal scallopini
