Last week, in one of her “last hamburger, last fatty food diet” mode, Mummy took me to lunch at our favourite Italian restaurant – Lucio!
It’s truffle season – and she thought a good way to celebrate before going in to the hospital.
I know they have tons of grissinis (Italian bread sticks) and I get to eat at least a pack each time when I put my nose on Mummy’s lap.Mummy ordered the taglolini with truffle. And along came Lucio himself as he shaved a generous portion of truffles onto the pasta More, more is what Mummy was thinking …Oooh! That smells interesting …
Mr. Lucio wondered if I would like some truffles …Note that he’s a little cautious and made sure I did’t lunge forward and gobbled up the whole piece! LOL!
So much so that on the way out, my little sniffer could smell the box of truffles behind the counter.And Yaca realised what I was after! She took me to the box of truffles behind the counterMummy’s all excited now – all it took was one try and I could smell truffles – she thinks I may have a career in the making. For one, we’re faster than the pigs!!! And after all, poodles and cockers are both hunting dogs so I have good genes!
And this is Dario – he’s the son of Mr. and Mrs Lucio (not their family name) and he’s the daddy of Coco.Coco is the resident poo – he greets everyone that comes, especially the doggies.And gets all the loving from everyone. My sniffer is obviously working because after the truffles, I could smell Coco’s treats!May’s comment: Just in case I missed out on the truffle season, took myself and Darcy to our favourite Italian restaurant Lucio.Always such a dog-friendly restaurant – never ever feel uncomfortable going in there.
In fact I found out it was dog-friendly by accident. We were walking along Fulham Road one Summer’s day – it was a warm day when Lucio spotted us and said – your dog need a drink and he hurried away to get a bowl of water for Darcy. It was only then that I found out they are dog friendly. And the food – delizioso!!!!
Owner Lucio Altana is the “perfect host” at his “romantic” namesake Chelsea venue, a “happy find” for “quality” Italian cuisine; though some wish for “more menu creativity” …
Lucio’s address: 257-259 Fulham Road
