how do I find a specific restaurant that has been reviewed on the Italy board?

Several people have said "look for those restaurants on the board they have been frequently reviewed"... I can't seem to find an easy way to do that as the search option always comes up blank.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    There is a search function in the upper right-hand corner of this page. Just enter the name of the restaurant you are looking for.

      Its too bad but the search feature in the upper right is still annoying because it useds "or" logic, turning up to many irrelevant results when there is more than 1 search term..Nevertheless ifyou should get relevant responses. Adding the city name may be helpful or it may generate a whole host of irrelevant results.

      I have two suggestions that may improve your chances of getting more relevant info quickly -
      (1) do a google search for chowhound italy [name of restaurant] [city]. With better search logic than Chowhound it will more likely pull up the more relevant threads first.

      (2) once you have a relevant thread on your screen look down to the bottom of the thread - the Italy Board Discussions listed there are likely to be the most relevant other threads (dont know why the logic is better in that feature but it is)

      Good luck - once you narrow your list it may be possible to get answers to specific questions, like whats good at X?.

      Just to add to the above. Not all the resulting posts will be what many us considered reviews. Many entries are just recommendations or short notes.
