Trattoria Milanese (Milan, Italy)

Delicious saffron risotto (which was ordered by every customer in the restaurant), and veal milanese.

L'Antico Pozzo (Bellagio, Italy)

The food was good, but the view of Lake Como was incredible.

Trattoria Sostanza-Troia (Florence, Italy

This restaurant has been in operation since 1869.  Their speciality is butter chicken.  The egg artichoke pie is also very good.  We poked around in the kitchen after the meal.
