A very pleasant lunch with friends at Basilico', in a shady corner of Modica Bassa today, consisted of:

beautifully presented antipasti,

a tagliata steak served with rucola [rocket] and Grana cheese for me,

spatola [scabbardfish] with vegetables for one friend

and linguine with tuna for the other:

There were small, warm bread rolls too, and plenty of them:

For dessert, this chocolate and orange mousse was definitely a winner!

There was service with a smile, shade and relaxing music too - well done, the Basilico'!

That looks gorgeous, Pat! The Mediterranean diet is to be envied. The ingredients can be so simple but put together in a tasty and healthy way.

Oh, all of that looks so tempting, so tasty. Now, I'm hungry...and I've still got a couple of hours until lunch...I guess I can break the rules if I so desire! :)
