Breakfast with Al Bano. Actually I was planning to go somewhere else for breakfast, but the place was closed and there I was in Larkspur. So I decided to try Cafe Lucano's breakfast offerings. I asked what the smooth Italian music was and I was shown an album of the popular singer "Al Bano". Giuseppe was serving this morning, one of the family who make your visit so friendly with his ready smile.
I tried the Contadina Fritatta, filled with zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms and eggplant if I remember correctly. Served with slices of sweet kiwi, garlicked yellow colored potatoes, and freshly toasted focaccia, I was sure for a moment that I was actually in Italy at a quiet place near the sea. Unfortunately, I had to return to reality, and take myself to the office. But I will be back again for another slice of Italy.
