As we were a big group, we started with a massive antipasto plate with all sorts of grilled vegetables, various salumi, vitello tonnato (typical northern italian dish consisting of thin slices of veal with a tuna sauce on top) green beans, mushrooms, caramelized onions and the like.
We moved on to pasta dishes that included gnocchi alla sorrentina (not exactly authentic as the mozzarella cheese is supposed to be melted and stringy within the sauce, but the gnocchi themselves were plump and delicious), large ravioli in a truffle sauce, spaghetti in a red sauce of mussels, and strozzapretti (literally 'priest choker', a form of pasta that looks like elongated cavatelli) alla N'duja (a SPICY spreadable sausage made with pork from Calabria, Italy).
Main dishes were the argentinian steak filet with truffle sauce and veal scaloppina cooked in marsala wine.

After such a large meal, you need to burn some calories, so I headed to the train station. The train station?? Yes! One of the hottest dance clubs right now in Nuremberg is inside the main train station and is called Indabahn (literally translates to 'in the station'). Click on the red arrows at the top of the 360 camera screen to choose a section of the club and see how cool the space is here: Indabahn 360 camera.
The music changes depending on the night and you can sit in the lounge or around the oval shaped bar and have a cocktail, or head to the lower level to the dance floor and show the glamorous crowd your moves into the wee hours of the morning; you'll probably be about ready for another round of pasta by then.
