And what a lunch it was. Fresh tagliolini pasta tossed with vongole—the tiny sweet and briny clams from the coastal waters of the Mediterranean—a touch of white wine, olive oil, and red pepper flakes; thick slices of sun-ripened tomatoes adorned with arugula; grilled bread… all washed down with a crisp and dry Vermentino from the hills of Liguria. It was alfresco dining at its best.
