His music is still great, and I am a huge fan. It and that of fellow mid-century Italian-Americans, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, and even sometimes Vic Damone and the overly smooth Perry Como, have helped to provide a very enjoyable and complementary musical background to restaurants here – mostly Italian-American and steakhouses – for decades, long after they’ve stopped recording. I’ve made note of that before.
I have enjoyed myself countless times when dining out with Sinatra and friends playing around. It just wasn’t with Italian food.
Tajarin with shaved white truffles a few years ago at Ristorante San Marco in Canelli near Asti. It wasn't bad.
