The Met in the Metropole Hotel, is amazing. The suprise menu is the best and the courses are so creative and tasty. Everything from cuttlefish, to pigeon, to deer soup, to hare. And a foiegras-chocolate mousse dessert combo. Excellent vin santo choices too. Has Michelin stars and the chef worked with Thomas Keller.
Il Ridotto, same owner an the very popular pizza place. Gianni makes every meal special.
He did a cuttlefish , sliced into fettuccini like strips, cooked in its ink and served over mashed potatoes, was an amazing dish.
There''s a place called Gandola something,,, had great marinated anchovies, and other seafood. Nothing fancy, just had what i was in the mood for.

    I didn't know that Gianni Bonaccorsi has a pizza place. You're not getting confused with Il Refolo which is allied to Da Fiore are you?

      He owns L'Aciugheta, which is mostly a pizza place.
