Caffe Casalinga, Hahndorf
"Casalinga" is a popular name for Italian restaurants meaning "Housewife". A previous review has appeared here for a restaurant of the same name. Merkel and Myrtle dined at this restaurant in the main street of Hahndorf recenctly. It is a friendly Italian restaurant serving pizza, pasta and other meals and had a live band on a Thursday night. The walls were adorned with vivid works of local artists. The meal and the music were very pleasant.
The hot chocolate came in a ceramic Vittoria cup and saucer. The Vittoria logo was on the inside of the cup and middle of the saucer. A dark chocolate wrapped in foil also carried the Vittoria brand. The hot chocolate was topped with a white froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The hot chocolate and the wrapped chocolate were tasty and cost $3.60.
