Several groups in my bicycle club have done tours in Italy, and the opinion expressed, no matter the region toured, that you can't get a bad meal in Italy.


I assume they were not interested in a good steak. and much of the soup I had there was merely pasta and a slight bit of flavor of chicken.

Hey, Bumpy! Have you ever had Italian Wedding Soup? I've made it several times and its very popular with our friends.

Don't try having that discussion with anyone from Italy or Sicily.
I spent 3 weeks over there and the food was great. In the North there is little tomato sauce, but it is all very familiar. The main difference is that they serve in courses, primera, segundo, etc. Portions are small. There are few fat Italians. Walking is part of their culture. I saw more fat people on the plane ride home (full of Americans) than in 3 weeks of traveling around the country.

yes, and IIRC, it is made to my previous recipe. take water, 2 cubes of chicken bouillon , and a handful of pasta. [emoticon]
reminds me of supper at a small mountain top restaurant, ordered my steak done very, very well (then it ends up sort of cooked medium) and got sneered at by the waiter. then he brought some ketchup to dump on it. I sneered back.

Clearly have never had a good Steak Florentine. Any Texan would walk away from the table happy.

yes, I have had some good steaks in Italy. (and the Italian section of Switzerland) but have also had to be somewhat selective in the restaurant chosen.
I have had some that obviously didn't finish in the money in the KY derby. [emoticon]

Isn't that the truth anywhere you go? Randomly pick a dozen restaurants in a U.S. city and you will have some good/great meals and some that were less than appetizing.
