Good morning David, Onno, Fabio,
Thanks very much for all your suggestions - very helpful. Shame about Osteria Francescana: Massimo Botura's reputation is indeed awesome, but I guess one has to plan ahead to get to eat there. I should have booked the table when I ordered the car!
We are arriving in Modena on 10th. September to collect the car on the 11th., meeting up with the current owner of my old Land Rover who lives in Modena on 12th., staying until 13th. or 14th. Plans thereafter are still a a bit fluid, but I am afraid we have to be back in the UK in good time for the start of my daughter's first term at university, so we shall be gone before you get there, David. We may be heading for Tuscany for a few days after Modena, Onno, but not sure yet - when are you going to be in Mugello?
Two recommendations from our last visit to Italy earlier this month, if anyone is going to be heading for the north west coast of Tuscany: La Barca in Forte dei Marmi and Enoteca Marcucci in Pietrasanta.
