I recently used Uber in Italy. (Milan) The drivers were very experienced professionals and definitely knew the city. One had been a taxi driver before.
There is only UberBlack in Milan so it was probably a bit more expensive than a taxi but it was convenient for me to use my app.

I have used taxis in other Italian cities and had no problem except for Rome.In Rome we had a couple of experiences with being dropped off at the wrong location, padding the bill, the driver not knowing where we were going etc.
I don't understand the depriving someone of their livelihood argument either, Uber drivers are earning their livelihood.

We have terrible taxis where I live and Uber can't come here fast enough for me. Also in some cities in the U.S. I have encountered some atrocious taxi drivers with the worst dirty clunked out cars(looking at you Washington, D.C. and L.A.) so it will be Uber next time I am in those places.
