In case it matters to anyone, both Il Ritrovo and Cinghiale Bianco are Rick Steves' picks; ditto Il Latini.

I promise to dig out our receipt and itemize what we ate just to do a price check...

But (for Ira specifically) Marco (?) the chef/owner did come out and spend quite a bit of time with us! He and my husband discussed beef since DH parents raise cattle in the US... he then chastized his son for not 'giving' after dinner drinks to our table and another - he was quite a joy and we spoke with him for a while about the restaurant and how it used to be a stable (notice the rings in the ceiling)... I loved the ambience of the place - very relaxing and our meal was great - so no complaints, I just did not find it 'reasonably priced'.

(I've been trying for the life of me to think of my meal - it was two primi courses! Ribolita - wonderful, and then ravioli with butter and sage for my main - mmmm... can't remember what DH had, but he started with a salad with special mushrooms 'uvos' or something close to the word for grapes/eggs, LOL - I'll look it up tonight!)
