A Real Italian Lunch At Espanol

ITALIAN FOR ONCE...

One fine afternoon our Boss took us for lunch, this time it was Italian food at Espanol Italian Restaurant at East Sacramento.  This is my first time to this place and first time drinking cocktails too while having our big portions of lunch set. 

Espanol Italian is a homey institution featuring traditional Italian dishes and drinking cocktails in an old-fashioned dining room.  We ordered a lunch set, it is 4-course family style lunch served with a bowl of soup, salad, followed by a main meal and ends with either coffee, ice tea and ice cream.
It was a Tuesday when we went there for our lunch...
Upon entering.... 
Started off with pasta and tomato soup.... 
Big servings... I managed to finish it all though... 

Hot sour dough bread servings is endless... 
Salami salad...
I could finish only half... share, share please..... 
Our main meal is Turkey with stuffings... mashed potatoes and cranberries jam.... 
Turkey special on Tuesdays.... 
And spaghetti with meat balls.... 
And Spumoni for desserts!
Our Italian Lunch at Espanol...
A real Italian treat....
We went home feeling tipsy after the red wine....
Not our fault, Boss...
No work for the rest of the afternoon... 
Siesta time!!
