Bruschetta and Bubbles

Published in: Daily Photo

Three cheers to eight years!

I’ve been craving pizza lately, and El Hub is always craving pizza, so for our wedding anniversary dinner last night, we drove up to Ca’ Momi, the yummy Italian restaurant we discovered last month in Napa.

We ordered some things we knew we’d like (bubbles and bruschetta), tried some new things we weren’t sure about (baccalà), and then walked around downtown Napa to let our tummies settle.


Not a bad way to celebrate eight years. 🙂

Bruschetta. Yeah…hard to go wrong with cherry tomatoes, garlic and basil.

The Baccalà mantecato alla veneziana appetizer. Creamy whipped cod dip served with crispy polenta crostini (I didn’t much care for this one. Kind of tasted like a slightly bland tuna salad.).

The Margherita Pizza from Ca’ Momi Restaurant in Napa. San Marzano DOP tomato sauce (here’s what the DOP signifies), mozzarella di bufala Campania DOP and fresh basil.

El Hub’s dish, the Calabrese pizza with organic raw onions, zucchini, buffalo mozzarella and Alle Pia spicy salame Calabrese. Yes, he inhaled it, whereas I could only finish half of mine.

The Oxbow Public Market, where Ca’ Momi is located.

Downtown Napa at dusk. It was actually a pretty hopping place, even on a Monday night.

    Happy anniversary, anniversary twin! Last night was my anniversary too with my hub! (Seven years for us.) There must have been an Italian food vibe in the air; we went to our favorite Italian restaurant in Santa Cruz. Congrats to you two on eight years!

    Looks lovely! I think I’d totally be with you on the whipped cod dip; most likely not up my alley. However, I probably could have scarfed all of El Hubs’ pizza and the 2nd half of yours. 🙂
