    How fun to find places that remind you of your old home. :-) I would love to visit every one of them, and linger long over coffee at Orsini. :-)

    • Cathy

      Exactly Krista. Orsini did look like a good place to linger over a coffee or two :-)

  • Elisa

    How fun! Maybe I should move to London and open my own Italian place… “Da Elisa”? :-)

    • Cathy

      That sounds like a great idea Elisa :-)

  • Janine

    Little Italy veramente! Good to know they’re there if you get homesick – for one of your homes at least! Bacioni.

    • Cathy

      Assolutamente si cara Janine :-) If I get homesick for Italy there are places to go to 😉 xx
