'Tis in Verona where our fair story is set...

We had an overnight stay in Verona: the place where I was going to propose to Tania (in a two Michelin star restaurant called "Il Desco".
We didn't get to "Il Desco" for dinner but found this lovely place called "Al Pompiere". We chose a mixed cheese platter for an entree; Tania had a Lamb Shank; I had Bacala (salted cod in a white sauce) with polenta.
The wine we chose was a lovely Valpolicello (reserve 2006) that really went well with all the meals. Dessert (for me) was an orange sorbet while Tania had the tiramisu. They were accompanied by a flora muscat-type drink for me & a sweet Valpolicello for Tania.
Yes...we did go & see Juliet's house & no...Tania did not hop onto the balcony. She did resist the urge to get onto the balcony to yell "Oi !! Romeo !!! Get your love sick arse up here pronto !!".
