Paid to cook, not spell
When we were on the Village Italy Tour in July with Lisa Anderson, we stayed in Monterosso along the Cinque Terre. We took the train for lunch one of the days to nearby Manarola and looked up a restaurant in Rick's Italy guidebook. We started to look at the menu at Trattoria Il Porticciolo and found that some guy named "Rick Stiven" had "raccommeded" it!
