Patate e Olive al Forno | Roasted Potatoes with Olives

My husband, Stephen, and I had this beautiful olive-studded crispy potato dish at one of our favorite Trattoria’s in Rome, Al Vero Girarrosto Toscano. It was a harmonious side dish to a medley of perfectly grilled Tuscan-style meats. The saltiness of the olives mixed with the crunchy potatoes was blissful. Definitely pair this dinner duo with a big Brunello like Madonna Nera!
