Earlier this week, the boyfriend and I met with his family to celebrate his parents’ 30 year wedding anniversary. Quite impressive, if you ask me, and definitely deserving of a little treat!
The weather has slowly been picking up, and even though it’s still freaking cold, the sun has peeked out every now and then. But still – we’re in the second half of April, and I’m still wearing my winter coat! That’s just not okay!
Might also explain my somewhat skeptical facial expression.

Also very typical for Copenhagen: adjusting your hair. Whoever nicknamed Chicago the “Windy City”, has obviously never been to Copenhagen!
We met with the boyfriend’s family at Kongens Nytorv and stopped by Fiat for a little pre-dinner drink. This cute little trattoria and wine bar has a lovely little winter garden and a cozy bar area that’s perfect for a glass of wine or an Italy-inspired cocktail.
Of course, we went with prosecco to cheer the occasion.
Did you know that the 30th wedding anniversary is called “pearl wedding”?
Having looked it up, we thought that a little Italian gem close to the Round Tower would be perfect: Spaghetteria La Perla!
I had come across this place rather randomly when I was out for dinner with my friend Caroline from Love Live Travel, and after having the WORST service experience at a wok place, we ended up here. It’s one of those little gems – red-and-white-checkered tablecloths, pictures of famous Italian people eating pasta, and huge portions of classic Italian comfort food. Crispy pizzas, scrumptious pasta dishes, big glasses of red wine, and heaps of Parmesan is pretty much all I need to be happy.
I had been dreaming about the Spaghetti Carbonara for about a week and a half, and I couldn’t wait to finally dig in!
A plate full of starch, cheese, bacon, and all-round epic deliciousness. When the plate arrived, my immediate thought was “that’s such a small portion – wasn’t it more last time?” But my fear was unfounded, as I wasn’t able to finish much more than half of the plate! Luckily, the boyfriend was eager to help. If you’re not quite as lucky and have nobody to help you finish your plate, they will happily make a doggy bag for you, too!
Everyone really enjoyed the food, and I know we’ll be having many a plate of carbonara in the future!
