WORLD’S BEST BREAKFAST
World’s BestBreakfast? I Kid You Not!
This was my typical Breakfast (Colazione)
at Villa Maria each of My Three Wonderful  Days There
Vincenzo the owner Makes all types of different Jams
from the fruit he grows on his farmer way up in the hill of
the beautiful little town on The Amalfi Coast .. Villa Maria is
a wonderful little farm/ agroturismo Inn in the town of Minori, 
a cute little town if you want to be on the Amalfi Coast but away from
the madening crowds that overrun the gorgeous little town of Positano.
Vincenzo’s main crop of his farm are Lemons with Olive Tree Groves,
Grapevines, and all sorts of fruits and vegetables, along with Chickens (for
meat & Eggs) and Pigs to make his awesome Homemade Salami. Vincenzo 
makes his own wine, Prosciutto, Pancetta, Coppa, and his tasty
homemade Fruit Jams which you spread on toast & Cornetto ‘s in the
morning for breakfast.
When dinner time comes, Maria (Vincenzo’s wife) makes an awesome 
Four-Course Dinner with; Antipast to start, followed by some awesome pasta or another,
a main-course of fish, meat, or chicken, and ending with either Fruit or a Dessert that Maria makes (I love the Lemon Cake), and some of Vincenzo’s Homemade Lemoncello.
And of course during the meal you’ll get a bottle of either Vincenzo’s own Vino Bianco or
Vino Rosso or both.
Villa Maria is one of the most special places you could ever want to stay at in your life.
It’s a once in a lifetime experience that not many people get a chnace to do, and I reccommend going there most highly, “You will have the time of your life.”
PACCHERI al FRUTTA di MARE
Mixed Seafood Pasta
“The Best Frutta di Mare Ever” !!!
Maria made me this awesome plate of pasta soon after my 
arrival. Vincenzo picked me up down in Minaori at
the wonderful Caffe Riso (Best Caffe & Pastry in Town)
and drove me u to his place (Villa Maria). When we got there
Vincenzo gave me a Lemonade made with his own Lemons. 
Best Lemonade of my life needless-to-say!
After I had my Lemonade and chit-chattted with Vincenzo
Maria & Nadia, I went to my room to take a show and freshen up 
after my trip from Napoli on the Circumvesuviano Train from
Naples to Sorrento, then a bus from Sorrento to Amalfi, and then
another bus from Amalfi to Minori, and finally a ride in Vincenzo’s
little Fiat Panda Station Wagon from Minori by The Sea, up to
Minori in the Mountains below Ravello at Villa Maria.
So after I showered and put on some fresh clothes and went back out
to the terrace (terrazzo) Vincenzo asked me if I wantedd a little pasta?
Hell Yeah!!! Then Vincenzo asked if I wanted some wine. Again, Heck Yeah!
I had his Vino Bianco, and when he brought me the plate of pasta(Paccheri with 
Clams & Mussels) that Maria made me, 
I was in 7th Heaven!
