I miss the atmosphere, the Spring weather (they can keep summer!), the outside/walking/carless lifestyle.
I understand what you mean. Even though I've not lived in Italy, I truly enjoy the atmosphere there, which is unlike any other place... Being outside, walking everywhere, eating gelato, pizza and pasta, and not gaining a single ounce of weight!
Jay, I love little hole-in-the-wall places with great food!
My mom & I found one such place while visiting Santorini, and we ate there every day during our stay!
I can't wait to try the Orata fish in red sauce with capers at Elle Effe, thank you!
Lifeisnow, How can I possibly not try your recommendation after reading your comment!
Florentine style steak; we still refer to it as the "meat-gold!" Done to PERFECTION!!
Thank you Lifeisnow! BTW, I love your nickname! It's such a great reminder!
Kim Thank you! I'm looking forward to my visit to Montefalco and will check out La Teatro :-)
Ken, Now I wish I had more days in each of my destinations so I could try all of these wonderful places!
Thank you for all your recommendations and for all your help with my trip planning!
Thank you Karren! Do I need to make a reservation at Ristorante Verbano?
Thanks for all your help with my trip planning! :-)
I'm definitely saving this post! I will start making a list of all your recommendations, for each of my destinations, so I can refer to it during my trip.
Thanks again to every one who has contributed to this thread!!!
Now all I need is to hear about your favorite gelato, pastry, or yummy dessert!
