Eating out in main cities


I was wondering if anyone could give me tips of nice places to eat in the following cities:

Sorrento, Rome, Florence, Milan and Venice.

I understand that the restaurants near the main tourist sites are often expensive and not as nice, so if anyone knows of any 'gems' that they have come across I would appreciate any information!

You need to do a search here..that information has been covered over and over again. You also need to state your budget.

Thanks for your reply,

We don't really have a budget, just want to find some nice places with good food.

I have attempted to search but nothing has really come up?

Try an "advanced search." (Click on this term under the search box on the upper right of this page) where it says "search the forums."

This can cover 3 years--make sure to adjust the dates. Then type in "restaurants Rome" and make sure to check the box so the search will cover the text and not only the titles...

For example, this is a report I did after my last trip to Rome, and it has lots of food info:

I wrote one or two others and will top them for you so they will show up in the current list of threads..

Do a search on "Franco" under Europe. Franco is most well informed. (A lebend in his own lunch time!!) He's written a Venetian and I think a Roman eating thread.

Ditto on Cul De Sac in Rome. Not expensive at all but fills up fast. Located just off the Piazza Navona.

Hi t,

Cantinetta Antinori, 3 Via degli Antinori
Great ambience, perfect service, excellent wines, VG+ food. About 125E with wine. Pasta in a sauce of zucchini blossoms, pine nuts and cream was particularly interesting.

Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco, 43 Borgo San Jacapo
Very pleasant atmosphere. Good, but not outstanding, food. Interesting local wines.

Osteria Dell Agnolo, Borgo San Lorenzo 24r
Stopped in for a pizza and a bottle of wine. Looks like a nice place for lunch or dinner. 25 kinds of pasta. Pizza made in house in a wood-fired oven.

Gusto Winebar and Pizza, 2 Via del Proconsolo
Pleasant wines, generous salads, low prices.

Ciro & Sons, Pzza di San Giovanni
Nice place for a pizza and bottle of wine. Good service and ambience. Pricey

Salaam Bombay, Via F. Rosselli 45r
Where the locals go if they want something exotic. A good, inexpensive Indian restaurant. Excellent nan.
