I like going to Galileo Enoteca owned by our alumna the very beautiful (ID#2000)Vanessa Vitrano. I like the cozy cellar ambiance of the “hidden” place. It is a nice place to unwind and have wine, cheese and antipasto. The enoteca was her project for her Entrepreneurial class. She later showed the concept paper to her father and now she runs the two stores, one in Calbayog street in Mandaluyong and the other at La Fuereza Plaza along Chino Roces in Makati. http://www.galileoenoteca.com/enoteca/index.cfm
I turned another year older this weekend (thank you to everyone who greeted 🙂 )We had a small dinner at Galileo last Friday. My work surrounds me with hundreds of people so now a days my idea of relaxing is something quiet like dinner, wine, coffee, and theater. As I age I have already accepted the fact that I am too old for clubbing, but and but again…I am never too old to drink too much! Wine, wine, and more wine! We had six bottles of the Marco Maci Sire Rosso 99 (the wine has aged and now is perfect time to drink the ’99) and a whole bottle of lemoncello. And In vino veritas (latin for in wine there is truth) I’m still not telling how old I already am!
Some Italian trivia (question posted by Stephen Almeda):
Enoteca – means “wine library”, more like a wine shop at times with a deli serving cheese, antipasto, and a simpler menu. Intended to sample the wine of the region
Trattoria – means “homemade”, less formal or less causal, food served family style
Ristorante – is a full service Italian restaurant
