You know you’re in trouble when you start feeling full a few days in to your trip in Italy. While it doesn’t have to be the case (there are other options), your time in this beautiful country usually consists of carbs on carbs on carbs.
Trying to have a lighter meal before my birthday dinner, we were recommended Aurora Light. HA. Birthed from the Terminiello family, this restaurant is part of three owned by the family. For over a hundred years, they have also run the kitchen of the historic Ristorante ‘ O Canonico 1898 and Pizzeria Aurora in the same Piazza Tasso!
My dad kept to eating light with an insalata de barbabietole, arance e finocchi salad — a beet, fennel and orange salad.
My mom and my form of eating lighter was only having one main course, a plate of pasta versus the 3 to 4 course meals we had had until that point.
The pesto was very light, fresh and delicious. It made us feel like we were ‘eating less’. If only we knew what was to occur later that evening at Terrazza.
