Restaurants in Venice, Rome and Florence with two teenagers

Jen, this is great, looking forward to Florence. Checked out slowfood website but couldn't find restaurant review section. Search of Board has been helpful, although opinions seem to vary widely on many places, almost as if each visit can result in a different experience.

I will be travleing to Italy for the rfirst time with my wife and two teenage sons in a couple of weeks. I would greatly appreciate recommendations in these cities for reasonably-priced, fun places that two teenages with only moderately adventurosu paltes might enjoy. Also, any recommendiaotns for a bakery near the Borgi Pinti?

Shibucho on Beverly Great Red Wine and Sushi

Was there with my father who doesn't eat sushi. Shige served him some fabulous unagi and cooked shrimp and scallops. There was one other couple there and we ended up sharing some wine, a 1959 Tour de Pressac, which was very good and great with the dishes that Shige served us. I am afraid I can’t remember them all, I do remember some great halibut. Dessert was a mango mousse and some absolutely lovely matcha (Shige said you could not find that tea in the US, it was something else.)

Shibucho on Beverly Great Red Wine and Sushi

Had dinner there a couple of weeks ago. A fantastic, authentic experience. In my opinion, the best sushi in LA, although I am admittedly not an expert. I have eaten there with Japanese clients of mine who are experts, however, and they concur. The unique aspect to Shibucho is the owner's (Shige Kudo) devotion to serving very old classic red wines with his food. The first time I tried this, I could not believe this combination made sense, but it does, trust me.

Hard fo find and not a great location, but worth the effort. Open Mon.-Sat., on holiday through 10/31/06.
