It's pretty much a given that every time I go to North Beach, I have to have a meal with Miss Rossi, my "Italian Mom". She grew up in North Beach, so she knows where all the hot spots are for a good Italian meal. We decided to go to Michaelangelos, after spending half the day at the North Beach Parade that happens every year on the weekend of Columbus Day.
Pasta, pasta, pasta. Tortellini in white sauce, penne in red sauce. Both, which were good, but when do I not like pasta? Or carbohydrates in general? Btw, love eating outside on nice days. Mainly because I love people watching.
Miss Rossi with our amaretto cookies and gummy bears at the end of our meal? I don't get it either, but it's what they're known for giving at the end of your meal.
