Our Anniversary. - Bravissimo

Today is our 15th anniversary :-) and we are going out to celebrate. The choice was left up to me, and we are going to try a place in a village not far from me....we are going Italian. :-)

We are going to La Fontana and even though we have lived here for just over two years we have never tried it...so here goes.

I looked on their website today just to look at the menu and noticed they had a review written in the Telegraph last saturday 15th February. All seems very good.

Luckily for us we didn;t get married in March or later, as Arni would of been off on his travels with Williams F1. He will be travelling now more or less from March until October.

Will give an update tomorrow. xox

UPDATE - The night was fantastic, the food was brilliant..The Wine and Champagne was flowing!!!!

I had Calamaretti - crisp deep fried squid served on a bed of fresh lettuce leaves followed by Risotto con Gamberetti e Scampi alla Provenzale risotto with prawns and scampi in a creamy tomato sauce.

Arni had Pate del Capocuoco chefs own chicken liver and pork pate served with toasted bread followed by Filltto di bue alla Rossini - fillet steak with bacon, mushrooms, onions, red wine and brandy topped with chefs home made pate and mozzarella cheese.

We had no room for dessert, but did round the evening off with a coffee.

It was Superb!!!

  17. Hi Liz...Don't normally eat Fish when I go out in this country..always in France, Spain or Italy...Decided to this time, as the Restaurant is owned and run by an Italian family, it is in a village that lots of people have to drive through to get to Oxford, and nowhere else for miles except pubs so their reputation is important. It was delicious...heres to next time.
