reflections on cugini pizza























I always associate italian restaurants with an old billy joel song about brenda and eddie. does anyone know it? I listened to that album I can no longer remember the name of, over my christmas break while pining away for a boy named anthony. sweet memories. and this restaurant was pretty good too. tasty, cozy (especially with anthony) and not too expensive.

nice reflections. ;-) I have to look up that song. I'm not sure if I know it or not. I like the hearts on the ceiling. You find the nicest decorations.

'Scenes from an Italian Restaurant' (one of my favorite songs) is originally from the 1997 album 'The Stranger'.
The third and last part of this song is usually known as 'The Ballad of Brenda and Eddie'.
I have just read that Billy Joel premiered this song at Long Island University C.W. Post Campus.
The restaurant in the song was the 'Fontana di Trevi' in Manhattan, across from Carnegie Hall. Last time I saw it, in 2008. it was still there.

I love that song too! Many scenes from Italian Restaurants here in Milan. Beautiful peaceful glow from the candlelight...and perfect hearts for upcoming Valentine's Day.

I HEART the valentine photo, the way that all of the visual interest is at the top of the photo!

Gorgeous still life! A bottle of red, a bottle of white ... the Stranger is one of my favorite Billy Joel albums. Thanks for the big smile this morning. Kathy

I am not familiar with the song so can't comment on that. The reflections in your photo are magnificent.

Beautiful reflections, Lily. I imagine that the pasta is excellent in that restaurant!

Louis la Vache said...

Although «Louis» is fond of the 'oldies', he can't help you with this one - so he's glad to see VP filled in the blanks! When «Louis» says he likes the oldies, he means the real oldies - nothing much later than Mozart... ;-)

Music has a way of keeping memories alive, that's for sure. Now I have to Google the song...but maybe it will cause me to reflect on something sad too. Ah, I'll check it out anyway!

I've eaten in Fontana di Trevi SO many times! They served their salad in a bowl made of Parmesan cheese and I actually duplicated it! One of my faves (as is that album—thanks, VP), but I'm pretty sure the restaurant is no longer there (I just tried to call them—no luck). Meanwhile, I love your reflections, and I could definitely go for a slice right now!

James said...

Cool. I love pizza so this is my kind of reflection. :)
