La Torretta is closed, for the second winter holiday,
always taken in the lull between Valentine's Day & Easter.
That means we have to go somewhere else for Saturday lunch.
So we decided to give Pit Stop, just off Piazza Padre Pio,
It's nothing special from the outside & rather basic inside,
but it's family run & the family 'live above the shop'.
We last went in November, when La Torretta took its
first winter break. On that visit we both had rabbit stew,
& very good it was too.
No such luck today - there was chicken,
castrato (yes, bull's testicles - we HAVE tried them in the past,
but they are an acquired taste & not one we really wish to acquire),
spaghetti bianco or gnocchi sorrentina.
We both settled for the gnocchi, with a sprinkling of
parmigiano on top to finish it off.
Not bad for €3,90 a dish, but nowhere near as
good as anything we've had at La Torretta.
