Osteria Cipolla Rossa, or the “Red Onion”, is located right in the heart of Florence, very close to the Duomo.
Generally good Tuscan food here at Trattoria I due G but nothing too amazing.
Situated inside the Gucci Museum outside the Uffizi, the Gucci Cafe is probably a place that most people would expect to be overpriced and serving touristy food.
Trattoria Sostanza is one of those places that’s literally stuck in a time warp. It was opened in 1869 and 1.5 centuries later, they’re still around and churning some of the best food in Florence!
Everyone visiting Rome invariably ends up visiting the Piazza di Spagna to see the Spanish Steps, so taking a left down Via dei Condotti, the street of all the branded luxury goods, is pretty much a given too.
La Zanzara, or “The Mosquito”, is one of the best places I ate at in Rome, and one great thing is that it’s almost open all day, with just the menu changing between breakfast and the rest of the day.
I honestly don’t remember much about the food at La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali but I didn’t really hate it so I guess it’s a decent option if you need to grab lunch around the Colosseum.
