Ristoranti/Gelati Suggestions in Italy

I'm very excited about our upcoming trip to Italia (next week!) and can't wait to indulge in the food (among other things). I'm trying to do my due diligence now to make sure we have a list of great restaurants, gelaterie, and cafes to try while there. If anybody has any recommendations for particularly yummy places in:
- Rome (I know of San Crispino gelateria by Trevi Fountain and love it - I hope the quality hasn't changed since 9 years ago when I was there last. I also know of a bakery in the Jewish ghetto that serves the best torta di ricotta I've ever had)
- Amalfi Coast
- Florence or in the Chianti region
- Venice
- Belaggio (or other towns in mid Lake Como)

Grazie mille!

Rome - Tre Scalini on Piazza Navona (you must try the Tartuffo!)

Florence - Festival del Gelato on Via del Corso (huge flavor selection, good gelato); Vivoli (near Piazza Santa Croce, reputedly Florence's best gelato)

Venice - Gelateria Paolin, San Marco, Campo Santo Stefano; Lo Squero, Dorsoduro, Fondamenta Nani; Gelateria Da Nico, is on the Zattere ai Gesuati, Dorsoduro 922; Rosa Salva, Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo (also additional locations)

All of these gelaterie in Venice had delicious gelato.

If you will have a smartphone you may want to check out 3 apps by Elizabeth Minchilli, available on iTunes.

The apps are called EatRome, EatFlorence and EatVenice. I've only used the EatRome app, but used it on 2 trips to Rome last year and found her recommendations to be spot-on.

We will have a car and plan to tour around Florence & Chianti. Would love to make it to Val D'Orcia, but I think that might be too long a drive from Florence for only a day trip (per the suggestions of others).
