Bon Appetito,

A dinner in Rome

Elegance and style for my dinner in a top Rome restaurant near Piazza Navona: Convivio. Angelo Troiani’s modern versions of the typical Roman cuisine offers dishes brimming with personality, like the bay leaf scented roasted pigeon with tangerine sauce and the tasty embrace between crustaceans and pork tripe in home made tagliatelle with Roman pecorino cheese and mint.

Cara Maria Luisa-
It's a shame that not a single Italian Restaurant is in the Top 10,...What's worse is that S. Pelligrino is an Italian Company...I have been to a few of the Top ten restaurants and I'm sorry they are not that good in fact I found them mediocre at best. I have found that Food Critics for the most part undervalue our Italian culinary traditions. However, public polls in the US even among gourmet/foodies have always put Italian Food as their favorite cuisine. Every year a poll conducted by the Wine Spectator magazine always lists the readers favorite cuisine as Italian...Thats why I don't understand the disconnect with Food critics.

Well next time you find yourself in San Francisco you can come and try Ravioli di Foie Gras con Tartufo Bianco
that I make

Michelin stars aren't very important here....They haven't reviewed many cities...And the restaurants they reviewed in New York for example...there ratings were completely inconsistent/flawed to the point that most restaurants don't take them seriously...If you are French you automatically got Stars if you are Italian you didn't....I think they are still bitter about the world cup loss

Buongiorno Maria Luisa

Thank you so much for your comments on some of the leading Roman restaurants.

You also made an excellent point: EMOTION. The emotional connection and relationship of Italians to food is something I have experienced but find it difficult to put into words.

It would be great if you could use your journalistic skills to write about EMOTION as it applies to food in general and restaurants in particular.

All of us have been in the middle of a story, a novel, a film, a theatrical or storytelling performance and found ourselves emotionally engaged. It is as if the story had reached inside our consciousness and taken hold of us, and we know in that moment that we are in for a tearful or joyous ride.

This effect is principally a result of a truthful approach to emotional material. A story that deals directly with the fundamental emotional paradigms–of death and our sense of loss, of love and loneliness, of confidence and vulnerability.

Maria Luisa, I very much look forward to your emotional cookbook, recipes and reviews. Grazie Mille.
