tavern

This banquet hall looking restaurant has always intrigued me. The girl in the sign looks more Spanish than Italian, but maybe that is an old Abruzzese style of dress?
It has been here since forever, and looking it up, turns out it opened on June 6 1944, 
co-incidentally, D-Day.

How very odd looking.
To me it doesn't look very inviting, but what do I know.

Somehow I wouldn't be tempted to go in so maybe I am missing out on something!

It does seem more Spanish than Italian and no, it doesn't look very inviting with that kind of facade. Maybe you need to be an insider to know how good it is.

I like the stone exterior and the tile roof. As for the food, sometimes the neighborhood taverns are the best.

You me and Lesley posting restaurant signs. Is this the power of mental telepathy?

Trocadero is an island in the Bay of Cadiz, in the South of Spain, bordering the Spanish mainland. Nowadays, it is connected to Cadiz by the bridge that goes across the bay. Originally, the name trocadero refers to an emporium or place of trade. So the Spanish dancer is not misplaced...

I wonder they chose a Spanish name for an Italian restaurant? Maybe it was Spanish to begin with? Looks like a wonderful place anyway!

Do they have a lunch menu? Maybe something to see? :)

They seem to only be open Friday and Saturday after 5pm, which I find odd for such a big place.

...and it was always Italian
