A VISIT TO AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT

I discovered this restaurant on my previous trip to Cuba. The restaurant was voted as one of the top 10 eateries to be visited. I tried pizza topped with eggplant, fresh tomato, garlic, basil and cheese and was pleasantly surprised. The pizza was the way I like it, nice and crispy. The tomatoes were tasty and the basil was a nice touch.
On this trip I had a friend come with me from Toronto and wanted to show him my find. We went for a late lunch with the
intent of having pizza. As we were looking at the menu, Walter, the owner, stepped out with a huge live lobster displaying it to the customers. We changed our minds and decided to have the lobster and a whole red snapper as our main course. We started with a salad of lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots and onions. It was really delicious.
The lobster was just simply boiled while the red snapper was done on the grill. All the fish needed was olive oil and salt and both were on the table. Then we ordered baked potatoes stuffed with cheese and ham. We ate cakes for dessert and drank tea.
My friend was in heaven as was I. What a perfect lunch! I would strongly recommend calling for reservations.
