One of the best things I did when in Rome!

November 28, 2022

Tolles Restaurant, supernette Leute, ein genialer Abend! Pasta selbst machen ist einfacher als ich dachte und in so einer netten Atmosphäre merkt man sich alles noch besser :) Definitiv nicht mein letzter Kurs, ich freu mich auf den nächsten. Unbedingt buchen, in die italienische Küche eintauchen und genießen. Es ist ein Erlebnis!
