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