The Sardinian white at lunch. slightly cloudy with an orange hue, truly packs a punch!
After Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral where Frank kisses the ring of the Cardinal, we make it to Fratelli Paradiso in Challis Avenue, Potts Point for lunch. As it is Sunday, Frank grants me a dispensation to imbibe, and imbibe we do. I wish I’d stuck to my diet!
The ever-so-lightly battered calamari and simple Insalata Caprese are hard to beat, and how can I deny myself a dip of freshly-baked bread rolls in the dish of olive oil?
We don’t stop at that, and needless to say, our plans for a drive to the sea. for breath of salt air and a macchiato on our only sunny day this week, are quickly abandoned in favour of an afternoon nap.

The Sardinian wine clearly clouded your mind Mick – that caprese salad is definitely Fratelli Paradiso NOT Fratelli Fresh! All looks wonderful. X P
great blog piece!
Excellent photos! I am glad Sunday Mass was at the Cathedral. Palestrina was quite an upgrade!
How come Carnival is still going on in the middle of Lent. In Rio they take the whole week before Ash Wednesday as it should be.
It looks like a delightful day …. eating and eating!
