We all love desserts and especially from Italy.
I recently went to an Italian restaurant here in Villavicencio called Limoncellos; everything was pristinely perfect from the décor right down to the semi-plastic see-through chairs.
Treasures of Colombia: Panna Cotta (Colombian Street Food)

My friends and I ordered a few exquisite dishes including Octopus Salad, Seafood Cazuela, and Pasta, of course!
We definitely enjoyed our meal and proceeded to order that final touch to the meal…dessert!
Being that I knew nothing about Italian desserts, my friend Dr. Ligia ordered something called Panna Cotta; two different versions. One was the original from Italy and the other one according to the waiter was the Colombian version.
Italian Dessert Panna cotta
The original version I was told is made out of a special sweetened cream thickened with gelatin and molded. The cream may be aromatized with coffee, vanilla, or other flavorings; and the Colombian version is a mixture of cheese and pureed passion fruit.
Well, we bought both versions – they were both extremely delicious.
So, if you should visit Italy or any Italian restaurant please order the Panna Cotta.
