OH... I wish I did. I'll we can remember is that it was in Rome and that we took a short drive to the train and then the train into the city proper. It was a short ride.

It was a camping/parking over night type place. People had tents, vans, cars ... I wish I knew. I so want to go there again.

I'd like 1,000 year old eggs, prepared to order.

That's OK, I don't mind the wait!

Trish, was that the north side of the town? Prima Porta rings any bell as that train station? I can think of one camping site in that area where some people said that their chefs in the restaurant were very good...I think the camp site had a different name but it could have been changed... I will check on that!!

I just don't know... we were in Europe for 10 weeks and saw and did so many things. We should have taken notes to help us remember the details. I ask Paul if the Prima Porta sounds good to his ears.

Thanks!

Trish, I just did a quick search on the net and yes my intuition was right!! It was the same place I was thinking of! You know it is not so often that a camp site hosts a quality eating joint and when a couple of friends of ours told us about this place we couldn't really believe it... like eh? good eat at a camp site??? naaaa... but now this notion is getting more credible, we will check the place out when we go out to that area next time!!

btw excuse me everyone for hijacking the thread!! curiosity killed the cat

Version #2
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon Creole mustard
1 teaspoon salt

I think I would first have to eat the governor's order declaring I must be executed.

I would have to say... a large thick crust pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, extra cheese, Canadian bacon, Italian sausage and green peppers from my favorite pizzeria, Balistreri's and a six pack of Heineken.
