    Frequent business traveler Alan Intrator keeps coming back with clients to an Italian restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles where he says they're "always treated like rock stars."
    The service at La Gondola "is insanely off-the-wall fantastic," and "I love Italian food," says Intrator, who lives in Woodmere, N.Y., and is the president of a company that provides credit card processing referrals.
    Italian food remains a staple for many business travelers who need to entertain clients. And it remains a favorite of many for own their meals when on the road, regardless of the size of their expense accounts. So, USA TODAY asked restaurant guidebook publisher Zagat to select what it considers to be the top Italian restaurants in the country.

    Zagat — whose reviewers rate Italian cuisine as the most popular cuisine, followed by American and Japanese — chose the best Italian restaurants in 22 metropolitan areas.

    I am conflicted :confused: Zagat and USA Today ??? A match made in heaven:rolleyes:

    Didn't read all the article but a scanned I noticed a whole section was spent on a diner who says she "don't really like Italian food" huh???
    Those are the experts they chose???
    I just couldn't bother to read anymore of that utter nonsense.
