Potato Gnocchi Special from Balena

An easy to navigate list of restaurants that I have posted about that are way too delicious to pass on, as well as what we munched on and delighted in! List is ordered by City/District (as I expect I will recommend other places as I eat & travel)! Clicking on the restaurant name will direct you their website, “Read More Here” will direct you to the expanded post (when applicable)! I also love to get recommendations, so feel free to comment with additional menu items you think we should try or other restaurants you think need to be on this list!
