Best of luck!
I have trawled my records without luck on the mystery restaurant en route
between Bologna and Cortona. A little room to manoeuvre in that distance!
But I hang my head with shame at the filing deficiency. All I can offer in
my defence is two floods and a building project, since the records were
Just to confuse you even more in your rate the rater quest, I too have a
plate from Taverna del Lupo in Gubbio - but very good memories of a most
enjoyable experience there. Charming and caring waiters, a sommelier (can't
think of the Italian word - if I ever knew it) who looked after us
beautifully, and a good menu. Admittedly, it was a few years ago now but it
does show that you just have to be there, doesn't it.
To make amends, I am passing on to you a recommendation from someone else -
a good judge of such things - for a restaurant in southern Tuscany: Da Caino
in Montemerano, a 2* Michelin restaurant, and the chef, Valeria Piccini, is
featured in the publication 'Jeunes Restaurateurs D'Europe' - Italian
version 2000, I am told. (To add insult to injury, I recall that there was a
write up in a version of that publication also about the chef at the
magical vanishing restaurant.) Gambero Rosso gives Da Caino due forchette
and 88 points, for what that is worth. Happy dining!
