A few months back, Mark Bittman wrote about SF's abundance of regional Italian restaurants ( http://travel.nytimes.com/2011/01/30/... ) . He reviewed restaurants specializing in 4 of Italy's 20 regions. Do y'all have suggestions regarding the other 16 regions? Excluding restaurants that showcase regional specialties from various places in Italy, below is what I've come up with.
*Indicates that they have broadened beyond their initial regional focus or are notable for showcasing foods of one region not found elsewhere in SF
Liguria (e.g., Genoa)
Istrian (territory formerly part of Italy)
Lazio (e.g., Rome)
Regions lacking representation:
Trentino-Alto Adige/South Tyrol
