Port Angeles Washington was my next American port. It is also where they filmed the Twilight movies. There is a scene in one of the movies where Bella and Edward go to a restaurant and Bella ordered the Ravioli’s. We needed to get those Ravioli’s. The restaurant is conveniently named Bella Italia.
My friend Leanne and I made reservations for a bunch of friends and the 2 of us. However, no one came so Leanne and I enjoyed a nice Italian dinner together. Leanne was set on getting the mushroom Ravioli’s in a creamy besciamella sauce that Bella ordered in the movie. She is a huge Twilight fan.
My decision was a lot harder. The special list that night had a lot of great choices. I was going back and forth between the Veal Ossu Bucco and the Parpardelle in brazed rabbit. The other thing I wanted to do was get lasagna for the table. I saw a lasagna come out as I was getting seated and it looked really good. I was not coming back to this port so I needed to make the right decision. After thinking about it and consulting with the waiter I went with the 2 specials. We got the rabbit for the table and I got the Ossu Bucco for my dinner. When in doubt… go with the specials.
I definitely made the right decision. The rabbit was amazing. There was a crunch that was sprinkled on the top that made that meal delicious. The Osso Buco was tender and all the vegetable underneath made it a good combination. I think Edward made a good choice when he took Bella out to dinner.
It has been a really long time for me to go out for Italian food. It was a nice choice and a good company.
