Of all the trips I’ve done in my life, going to Italy last summer was the most memorable one because I had pasta for lunch and dinner for 12 days straight.

Heading to Milan for the day from Switzerland was really one of the best day ever because I knew that I was going to have the most delicious pasta in just a few hours. After making a few phone calls and messaging Italian friends, it all led to one place: Santa Lucia.

I wondered what was so special about this place since the decor had nothing special and there was no line when we got there. But the moment I tasted my pasta topped with tomato sauce, I understood. This place was a mix of magic and paradise; heaven in your mouth.

The Food

We first shared a huge pizza that was one of the best I’ve ever eaten. We then ordered a beef carpaccio and an artichoke salad that had the most amazing lemon dressing. My family ordered their pasta which was a seafood topped one, a Bolognese one and other different sauces. They were all incredible!

I don’t even know how we got to order desert but we did, a tiramisu, obviously! It had the best creamy texture and coffee taste; a true Italian delish.
