Is Sometimes Big Problem In Europe Mr Joseph Sansone and his wife Arbelyn Wilder Sansone are touring Europe for the Lebanon Daily News They will spend two months studying and comparing conditions in eight By JOSEPH SANSONE ROME Food is a very important subject to tourists Because in a strange land it is necessary to be sure that eating places are safe and sanitary Milans Aldo Restaurant was probably the wrong place to be introduced to Italian cuisine There all the food the dishes made distinctive by the skill of the Italian was ot the very best including their unrivaled antipasto ravioli and similar dishes Milan was the first Italian city we visited and ever since we have not found any Italian food comparable to Aldo s We were fortunate however in Rome in the dis covery of thie California their American luncheonette where we had he best lunch since leaving home Nothing has tasted so good as the hamburger with a coke and a piece of Boston cream pie a milk shake and a salami sandwich American style Of course Italian food is popular with some people and unpopular with others We are getting tired of European bread and coffee and would relish a change to Finks and a good cup of American coffee such as can be obtained at Andrews The Colonial The Palace and other uptown Leb anon restaurants The Royal Danieli Roof Terrace overlooking the beauti ful lagoon of Venice offered an exquisite menu The little shrimp cocktails were tasty but could have been made much better with a good red sauce and some horse radish The chicken cacciatore was delicious and after everything is said the Danieli offered good food and an excellent view of the beautiful waterways of Venice Lunch at the Rome Airport was good consisting of a toasted ham and cheese sandwich and a coke They also served tiny pizza pies and prosciutto sandwiches The Visuvio s Roof Terrace in Naples served atrocious sandwiches with fatty ham cold soup They said the beer Ike Given Hershey Golf Club Membership

Separated By Surgery Leave For Home was warm f nit MVitl 111 This restaurant was very inadequate but the Trans Lantico in iNaples offered good music joviality and the hospitality of an Jtalian Army colonel which all added up to a happy meal in dirty Naples What did we eat Anybody can name it as we have no adequate words to describe the pasta courses and the entree ullKCapCl the Quesiana Hotel served good American food in the Open Garden Terrace beautifully landscaped with semi tropical trees and flowers To get to the Quesiana involves a nan driver takes your life and his own life in hi in his h e hands while motoring over winding roads only wide y mH CH With a1 S0rts of cai l M i i cairage and beasts of burden blocking the way The driver who blows his horn the loudest gets there first A motor car cannot reach the hotel but leaves his passengers with a fiveminute walk ahead The best drink in Italy is bottled water good insurance at little expense Desserts were standard either fresh fruit or cheese Ice cream manufacturers should take a lesson from Roy Gollam who if here would become a millionaire over night The pastry was very inferior to Royers cake shop at home Dinner in Rome at the Hosteria Dellorse is worthwhile and they actually serve filet mignon American style A meal at Alfredos is memorable in every respect Alfredo the pro prietor takes delight in personally mixing his frettuccine which is the Italian counterpart of our Pennsylvania Dutch noodles but Alfredo embellishes the operation with manner isms peculiar to his mustachioed countenance Alfredo who is nearly 70 years of age is definitely a showman which he brings out amidst the flame of his crepe suzettes City Tax Facts Nearly 95 Per Cent Of 1953 City Taxes Paid By Oct 1 About 95 of all Lebanons city
