Lombardy stretches from Switzerland, down through the stunning lakes and on
to the flatter plains of the River Po. Known as the center of Italian (some
say European) fashion, commerce, and industry, it comes as no surprise that
gorgeous palazzi and villas line the lakes and that efficiency is so highly
valued. Many attribute Lombardy's strong economy to its terrain -- it is
generally flatter than much of Italy, which makes travel between the small
boccondivino: where food & wine become art
Boccondivino -- a ristorante that is not about what they cook in the kitchen, but their collection of the finest affettati, cheeses, and wines produced in Italy.
Mimmo's bar is not licensed to serve meals so in a strict legal sense he does not . . . but you won't leave hungry. There are no menus, no pastas, no risottos, and no roasted meats or juicy steaks. At Mimmo's you feast on antipasti.
