Nick has been away for business since Sunday, so I’ve been filling my time with friends! The last three nights have included three great dinners at three restaurants I’ve never tried before with three great ladies, but last night took the cake. Kate and I decided to finally try Italian grocery store/home to 10+ cafes and restaurants, Eataly.

We settled on the cafe La Pizza & La Pasta because it’s obviously going to be amazing in an all-Italian shop. Kate and I sat at the bar and shared a pasta dish and a pizza.

Our pizza choice was the Verduretta, covered in roasted vegetables. I love veggies and I make them all the time at home, but I don’t know how they got these to taste the way they did – so delicious!

Our pasta was Pansotti, made up of ricotta, spinach, lemon butter, and pistachio. I’ve never had anything like it! Again, an amazing dish. Look at that butter glisten.

Like a good lady, Kate picked up some treats for her Italian fiance before we left.

So many types of pasta…

…including the biggest noodles I’ve ever seen! How would you cook them?

After dinner we went to incredibly sexy speakeasy, Raine’s Law Room. We allowed ourselves two cocktails each, made with so much care and brilliant ingredients. We didn’t get a booth, but found a seat in the “kitchen” area that was perfect for people-watching. So many first dates!

Second only to their amazing cocktails, the decor of the bar is beautiful. Check out that naughty wallpaper in the bathroom!

It was definitely a night of delicious indulgence, but we’re worth it :)
