OCTOPUS AND OTHER SEA DELIGHTS SO
FRESH AND FANTASTIC THAT YOU'LL SWEAR FLORENCE MUST BE A SEASIDE CITY
We had to fight with the second cabbie to get to the real La Cucina Del Garga by insisting we be deposited at its Via San Zanobi, 33 address -- even if there wasn't a trattoria within 2 kilometers (as the moronic driver insisted).
So again, against all odds, Chef Alessandro Gargani calmed us, entertained us and pleased or palates with his stellar cuisine.
We were not starving -- so rather than doing formal primi, secondi, antipasti and contorni -- we settled on a secondi patti each plus one starter and one side to share.
Though Florence is about 90 kilometers from the Mediterranean, we put our trust in Chef Alessandro and both ordered secondi piatti from the sea.
