Ristorante Da Luigi: My Favorite Place on Earth

  • Da_luigi_photo_4
    Da Luigi, the restaurant in this photo, is not far from the Blue Grotto on Capri. If I had only one afternoon to live, I think I would like to spend it here. Drift on in to the little cove in the boat you've hired for the day, drop anchor, and await the restaurant's launch that will bring you in to the sunbathing area. This is where I like to look around to see if my future wife is in attendance. From there, a chatty Italian waiter will escort you to your table, where you are encouraged to while away the afternoon over delicious food, wine, and plates of olives, prosciutto, and parmigiano.

Charles, I wonder if you have read one of Massie's other great books-- Dreadnought. It is a fascinating look at the arms-race between Great Britain and Germany leading up to the Great War. The aspect I found so riveting and tragic was Massie's portrayal of how the juvenile insecurities and egoism of one man (Wilhelm II) was instrumental in propelling Europe toward cataclysm.

I enjoy your blog.
