Fiorentino’s Cucina Italiana Chicago Bites Podcast #52

Our baby octopus appetizer.  Just staring at me.  So I cut off his head!

Tammy gives me a mini Italian lesson in this podcast. That’s because Fiorentino’s Cucina Italiana isn’t easy to pronounce. Still, I learned the name of this restaurant and you should too. The food is good and the atmosphere is cozy. But the best part is that Fiorentino’s offers half-price bottles of wine on Monday nights. You can eat and drink like a king for a price that’s an absolute steal!

    I think it’s hilarious that we got into a hobby that reveals how little we know how to pronounce. 🙂

    I am grossed out by that octopus every time I open the site! I demand new content! 🙂

    For a moment, I thought that thing was an Octodog.
