What's your favorite Italian meal and why? in Italy: Cooking & Baking Posted January 28, 2003 · Edited January 28, 2003 by Robert Schonfeld (log) This is hard. It's important to note that I've had more great food in Italy in private homes than in restaurants. I reserve the right to change my mind any time I feel like it. This may result in additions; rarely, if ever, subtractions. In no particular order:-coniglio, roasted or stewed, especially at Da Bona, Casoli di Camaiore-grilled fish, Alla Furatola, Venice-fritto misto, Da Fiore, Venice-spaghetti alle vongole on the beach, Forte dei Marmi-filled foccaccia & pizza, Pietro, Forte dei Marmi-truffle pie, Dodici Apostoli, Verona-entire meal at San Domenico, Imola, 1984*-entire meal at La Chiusa, Montefollonico, 1984 (we begged for mercy at about course 24, not including desserts)**I'd have to dig out the notes on these last two.Oh, yeah, and fresh fruit marinated in artisanal grappa.This is silly. That's just the very tip of the memory iceberg.
