Restaurant "Mona Lisa", in Hammerstein / Idar Oberstein

Antonio Caiazzo, one of Andreas' best friends, is the owner of the restaurant in Hammerstein, Andreas hometown. It is also the village kneipe, the local pub.

I was invited to a meal at the restaurant. As starter, I was served onion soup, served in a deep plate made from a pizza dough. Antonio insisted on a main course not on the menu, the famous Saltimbocca alla Romana, made from rabbit thighs and veal, served with french fries. He served a Sangiovese di Romagna 2003 to the Saltimbocca, followed by a great number of grappas........

Luckily, Andreas and his family will move into the building that house the restaurant in 2007. Conveniently close to Antionios great food and company.
