Restaurant Guide to Italy
It is often said that it's impossible to dine badly in Italy, and as a general rule that's true. There are enough customers to make the trade a real profession, even a calling, and intense local pride focuses attention on regional recipes. Those customers are used to good home cooking, and so make the same demands when they go out--and almost always find satisfaction. From modest eateries to the finest tables in top cities, there is good reason that travelers returning from Italy regale listeners first and foremost about "the food."
