English class goes to the Palomba restauant

english class lunch

My weekly English class opted to go for an early Christmas lunch on Sunday 5th. After some discussion it was decided to try the Palomba in Mondavio. There were 15 of us as along with the class, a few sposes the classs also invited Anne from Mondavio and Michael from Tavrnelle who had come to help in some of the classes.

Having been to the Palombo a few times and finding the food OK it was a great surprise to have an excellent lunch. When we arrived there was an aperativo of prosecco and aperol on the table. This was followed by mixed antipasti and then we had two pasta dishes – capoletti in brodo (a type of ravioli in a chicken stock) and nidi di rondini (swallows’ nests which were a type of lasagnae but made in little nests). Following this there was a mixed grill with roast potatoes and a salad and we finished off with a filled sponge cake and coffee. The whole meal was good and everyone enjoyed it. There were a few other groups also out to lunch and so the large dining room didn’t feel empty and impersonal atmosphere but there was lots of space between the tables.¬†Certainly a good way to start the Christmas season.
