Hi Friends!
I wanted to consult you guys on my upcoming food boyfriend and I will be traveling to Italy for a wedding at an agriturismo in Tuscany and will also spend a little bit of time in Bologna and Florence. After my boyfriend returns to the states I'll stick around and a couple solo days in Milan and one solo night in Bologna.

Based on the great recommendations here and off other sites and local acquaintances, I came up with a rough itinerary (if we can get tables at these places):

-Thursday Lunch: all'Osteria Bottega

-Thursday Dinner: Sostanza (or would you recommend Mario?)
-Friday Breakfast (before 9am): Nerbone (or is that too early?)
-Friday Lunch - Sunday Breakfast: Wedding in Agriturismo
-Sunday Lunch: Ruggero

BOLOGNA (again!)
-Sunday Dinner: Ristorante da Nello al Montegrappa/Antica Trattoria della Gigina/Anna Maria/Trattoria La Corte Galluzzi/Da Vito/Osteria dell'Orsa (the ones mentioned on CH have all received mixed reviews so haven't quite decided - what are your thoughts?)
-Monday Lunch (Modena): Osteria Francescana
-Monday Dinner: Al Sangiovese/Teresina/Sette Tavoli/Osteria dell'Orsa (which one do you think?)

-Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday Lunch: Abele Trattoria Temperanza/Trussardi alla Scala/Pane e Acqua/ Gatto/Solo Pizza/La Brisa/La Risacca 6/Manna
-Tuesday/Wednesday Dinner: 28 Posti/L'Incoronata/Al Bacco/al Pont de Ferr/Trattoria all’Antica/Piazza Miani...or just aperitivo, and only lots aperitivo :p
*Snacking: Sissi, Panarello, Luini
**any other places to recommend for a solo diner/drinker? I'll be staying near Navigli and will also be doing things near the northeastern and eastern parts of the city center and will travel in and out of Garibaldi train station

BOLOGNA (one last night!)
Thursday Dinner: Sale Grosso, or one of the spots I was considering for Sunday or Monday
