Milan Lunch

I suggest La Collonna off corsa magenta - Via S. Maria Alla Porta, 10 - great lunches and delicious home made pasta, lovely for supper too - lots of seafood but also great steaks. The best paninoteca is De Santis 9 Corso Magenta - matched wine and hundreds of variations of paninis in an oak pannelled room. Good that opposite Porta Genova station. Used to rate da claudio for cheap fresh sushi, but has gone off a bit recently. Also used to have lunch a lot on Ponte Vetero though, there are a few nice places for lunch - one where you can sit on a stool by the bar with a great range of salads, and wines! If you want supper recs let me know? In bocca al lupo

Hana and Big Island - recs for seafood lovers on honeymoon?

Help!!! We are trying to book our honeymoon and are thinking of Hana in Maui (for the peace and privacy) and the big island for something a bit more lively (no idea where yet). We LOVE seafood and chowhounding so any good recommendations of take away or restaurants would be great. We will travel far for great food, but don't like anything which means that we have to dress up! We have never been to Maui so have no idea what to expect and there doesn't seem to be much in Hana so we wondered if its worth staying there for more than 3 days? So any suggestions on where to stay on maui/ big island would also be great! Thank you ; )
