On our trip to Italy we ate lunch at several different Villas. The food was always outstanding and delicious.

At one of the villas, they prepared this tuna dish that was wonderful. I talked to the owner and he shared the recipe.

It has been a big hit with family and friends and is so easy to prepare.
