Food from Italy (warning: this may cause drooling )

I comissioned David to take some interesting food photos while he was in Italy and he delivered (what a good boy!). Here are the samples!
Look at the bakery shop! I asked David if he got to buy some, he said there was no time as they quickly walked by-shame!
See that Gelato? David did had his gelato and said that they are " SUPER creamy"! Sounds heavenly!!
This pizza looks ordinary enough, right!? Not so, according to David (droooool!)

Some appetizer this is..I think it's FRESH Mozzarella with olive oil and tomato-can anything be more Italian than this!?
And will you look at the glorious pasta?


Lastly, the dessert! Why, it's Tiramisu, of course! 
 
Can you guess how many photos David took from this trip? 1138 of them!! I am having a hard time narrowing down the scenic pictures and I will pick the top10 in the next post or two. Keep your eyes peeled :)
For now I thank my David for taking these awesome food photos.

David looks like he was having the time of his life...what a smile! Thanks for sharing the yummy food pictures. I think the appetizer is a Caprese salad- fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and tomato slices and drizzled with olive oil, it's one of my favorites. Can't wait to see more of Italy!

Wow Virginia, you are making my mouth water, all the delicious italian food. I love italian food and the italians do it so well. Even when you order a simple coffee you get a plate of yummy italian biscotti. I love past and pizza and especially italian ice cream, no wonder David is smiling. Thanks for sharing these.
Hugs
