Pepe Nero Trattoria, Herakleion

I had spotted Pepe Nero back in 2012 and wanted to visit ever since, as I had passed so many times in front of it! You see I have an affinity for Italian restaurants 🙂 Especially more so if the interior looks nicely put together. So last month I had the opportunity to visit and I wasn’t disappointed!

We started off our meal with a salad and an appetizer which featured cold cuts, arugula and Parmesan. Both were delicious, but I was eager to try my pasta as well. I had tagliatelle with mushroom, sausage and white sauce. My friends had risotto with mushrooms and bacon, spaghetti carbonara and farfalle with white sauce (not pictured). The tagliatelle were delicious, but I shouldn’t have eaten so much from the appetizers in order to have more “space” for the main dish.

The meal ended with complimentary desserts which featured a delicious semifreddo and banoffee pie. I made a resolution of visiting again! Hopefully this summer!
