While traveling in Italy this fall my husband closed his eyes and picked a spot on the map to visit next. We took the train to a town called MONTOPOLI. This town had no tourist attractions, no bars, no famous landmarks to visit. But it had an quaint hotel called the Quattro Gigli that we stayed at for two nights. The restorante is apparently very well known with the Italian's- The hotel owner is also the Chef. We ate lunch and dinner for two days - fresh black linguini with mussles/clams- all authenic italian dishes and if you dont have a reservation you dont get in. We were the only american's in the place. The only one that could speak English was our waiter who also took time to take my husband down to the wine cellar that was filled with an incredible assortment (he had cob webs in his hair when he came back to the table)- We had a 1998 Cab that was amazing for $25.00 US$. When we returned home from our trip and ran across a book that was about hidden risorante that are off the beaten path- and guess what? This one was listed! Yeah - we've been there!!!
