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.
