Cafe Firenze and Fabio- YAY!

Girl's Night this month was at Cafe Firenze and I was beyond thrilled. I am now in possession of photos with Fabio and an autographed cookbook. The food was AMAZING. As soon as I tried the gnocchi, I understood what real gnocchi is supposed to taste like. I was lucky to have my cousin there to share food with so I was able to taste twice as much. YUM! If you live anywhere near Moorpark, you must try his restaurant. He was expediting last night and it was so cool to see him at work. He patiently took photos with anyone who asked and was utterly charming. I must give a shout-out to Jennifer, my friend who made all the arrangements and gave me the chance to be a big dork and meet Fabio.
Can you tell by my super pink cheeks how embarrassed I am?

He's so cute!

Peartini, super delicious.

Pesto Gnocchi.

Butternut Squash Ravioli




  1. YUM! I keep meaning to go there, since a friend lives only a few blocks away. This is added incentive. Did you have to make reservations?

  2. I love this! We won a twitter contest to eat at Cafe Firenze and I can't wait to go again!

  3. The pictures alone (of Fabio HAHAHHAAHA) make me drool.

  4. Haha- the food is amazing and the picture of you and Fabio is a crack up.

  5. LOL. you look adorable! and so does Fabio.
    Although i cant help but think "Boogar" (AKA Burger) when i see his face. LOL.

  6. I still haven't tried that restaurant! It's been on my to-do list for a while. I hear the butternut squash ravioli is delicious. What do you recommend trying?

  7. RE: Girl Scout cookies

    I'm doing the Slow Carb diet, so now grains or sugars for me. Until Saturday. It's my designated cheat day, and I'm supposed to go crazy.

    So, right now, I have consumed zero cookies. If I end up passed out in a pile of 7 empty cookie boxes Saturday morning, I'll let you know. ;)

  8. OH MY GODDDDD!!!!!!! I adore Fabio! I've been watching top chef allstars lately and was sad to see him cut :( He is so beautiful!!! The food looks good too haha!

  9. Mmmmm, that gnocchi was so good! And that dessert looks fantastic definitely on my list now. Plus I just found out my Uncle plays in a cover band there every 3rd Friday, so I have an excuse to go again. YAY
