Why I like “Portobello”


“Portobello” is our local Italian restaurant. We’ve been going there since before Barbara and Giovanni’s kids were born (and they’re now 18 and 20…).

Popped in on our way home from dinner out with friends for an espresso, mentioned that we’d eaten – invited, actually -, stood at the bar and when it came to paying, Barbara said “Your friends invited you for dinner? I’m doing the same for coffee…”
