Pig and Sauce

Sugo restaurant, via Borra, Livorno
“Sugo” may be gravy or sauce in Italian, but I do not like it much as a name for a restaurant.
La Cravatta del Maiale inn, via Palestro, Livorno
“La Cravatta del Maiale” (The Necktie of the Pig) in via Palestro. “It suits him like a necktie to a pig”, we usually say this of something elegant on someone completely not.

There is an American phrase, "like putting lipstick on a pig," that means you can dress something bad up, but it is still bad.

That first pig looks pretty mean.

I like that saying! I can't think of anything similar here. I'll just use yours, thank you very much.

So many piggy signs. That in itself is funny to me because we never see them here in Israel.

Anche a me piacciono le insegne un po' particolari! Ciao, Arianna
