A chunk of Italy outside of Italy

Who would have known, that I found a piece of Italy outside of Italy. I love the Italian way of life, and especially the food. Therefore, I'd recommend paying the DaVinci a visit. As stated by Proserion the food takes for ever, but this restaurant can compete and sometimes outrun top-class Restaurants. Small hint: Order your beer yourself at the tab, they won't come for seconds.
