We had heard many stories about the Piccolo Pomodoro and busy with work and so many other distractions it took a long time to find the opportunity to be there. That chance came in 1992 (0r maybe 1993?) when Eric was on a project for Bayer in Haledon NJ. About 5 members of the project team came over for an evening dinner at the Piccolo Pomodoro. Giovanni greeted us warmly but would not give us a menu – he just asked us what we liked to eat, and then the food started coming, course after course. Lost count of how many dishes he cooked for us, but it was a night to remember. We all felt that we had come home to eat with family. When it came time to pay the bill, it took a long time to convince Giovanni that our employer, Bayer, would foot the bill…finally he relented. Still remember that night with a fond memory.
