Apparently the first generation friends I’ve got aren’t "real" Italians because they hate pretty much all of the Italian chains. They’re not "real" because they say that that isn’t what Italian food tastes like. What they cook for me must not be "real" because I don’t think I’ve had much restaurant food that compares to it.
I’m wrong and you’re right. Carrabba’s is fantastic and to suggest otherwise is heresy. [8)]
