I realize that many on Chowhound are looking for traditional Italian cooking at reasonable prices. Most of our choices were a bit more modern, creative, cutting edge and expensive. Still, they provided an incredible range of meals for us. We've been to over 55 countries, eaten our way thru numerous 2 and 3* meals and in retrospect, consider this our best foodie trip since following Pat Wells on her article on the best new French chefs in the country years ago.
An incredible trip but good to be back and diet for a while. Wife tells me if it won't fit under a door or a rabbit won't eat it, it will not be on the table
Hope this info is helpful to someone like you guys were to me. will monitor this for a week or two to see if anyone needs more info on hotels, food, things to see, etc
