    Re: A sentence

    This sentence makes no sense. Did you translate it from Italian?

    Re: A sentence

    Yes, I translated it from Italian.

    I try to explain.

    This restaurant is called "Bottega" which means "workshop".

    Its name derives from the fact that it is the result of an attentive renovation of tuff caves where there were old artisan workshops in the past.

    Is this sentece intelligible and correct?

    Thank you in advance!

    How about:

    This restaurant is called Bottega, Italian for "workshop", where thanks to attentive renovation, it enjoys the same location as the old artisan workshops carved into ancient tuff caves.
