Well, everyone knows by now that my experiences in France were different
than yours 8-). My only experience in Italy outside the airport in Rome
was Sicily,
Where I was generally favorably impressed. They kept offering me pasta
I didn't care for, but I was also offered so much other food that I
didn't suffer 8-) I also had some wonderful calamari more than once.
