A Dinner Date at Bar La Favorita Siena
Last night, my whole family (hubby, Leon, and Lucas) went on a post-Valentine’s dinner date at Bar La Favorita Siena. This was a big deal for us because it is NOT EASY to go to a fancy date place when you have two kids under the age of three. We almost did not get to go because hubby was so tired from work and Leon was being moody as usual- but I persisted because I know that we needed this.
We made the right decision to go. First of all, Leon slept in his stroller the whole time we were there. Lucas was just happy to eat his bread and tomatoes. The staff of Bar La Favorita Siena, Italy was so accommodating- the server immediately offered an alta seda (high chair) and arranged our table to fit the passegino (stroller). I was surprised that everything was going so well. Normally, Leon would be throwing a fit and Lucas would be crying, but tonight was different. My husband and I were like, “Oh my gosh, this is a very special moment. Let’s make the most out of it.”
So we spent the next hour and a half enjoying our food and actually talking to one another. It was a great night and we were so happy and satisfied after our date.
The Food (Buon Appetito)
The food was delicious! I am telling you, food in Italy is just 100 times better. The food pictures do not do justice. Also, as you can tell, I had a bit of wine. Just a little bit since I am breastfeeding.
By the way, we also celebrated Lucas’s 9th month! He is already eating solid food and he loved the Pappa al Pomodoro! I’d better learn how to make this at home.
Thank you for reading my post! I would love to hear how you spent your Valentine’s day with your family! If you have tips on how to go out with little ones, please share them in the comments.
