Quattro Leone

We had lunch at Quattro Leone a few weeks ago with another student. It was a good meal but not outstanding. Maybe we need to try it again. I say that because this restaurant always gets great recommendations. Anyway the interesting thing was the waiter we had. He was born in Albanian and he told us about swimming across an 8 mile channel on an inner tube to escape, with his cousin. (It was during the People’s Republic phase of their history.) Then he was captured and returned. He then escaped by walking – for good that time. He works in Italy currently and has worked in Arizona. He would prefer to go back to Arizona – a beautiful place for him. Hope he makes it.
