Local Eating


Here are a few of my favorite foods, drinks and the locations you will find them. I love pasta and gelato as you are about to find out.



VENICE


A trip to Venice requires a traveler to enjoy at least one tasty plate of seafood pasta. Several restaurants boasts of great seafood on their menu and I'm sure you can't go wrong wherever you choose. The same can be said for other great Italian dishes. The combination of pasta and seafood makes Venice a gastronomic paradise for seafood lovers.

FLORENCE


A trip to Florence would not be complete without having a true Tuscan sandwich from none other than All'Antico Vinaio for only 5 euros. Nothing beats a Tuscan sandwich on fresh focaccia bread with basil, tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella cheese.

ROME


What are the origins of pizza? Is it Napoli? Is it Roma? Who knows? So many theories and stories; however, one thing is for sure, pizza tastes different depending on the country, state, city, neighborhood, restaurant, kitchen...you get the idea. Rome also has great espresso, limoncello and gelato usually within walking distance from each other in many neighborhoods.

CINQUE TERRE


When visiting the five towns of the Cinque Terre you absolutely have to try the focaccia, basil gelato, limoncello gelato, any dish made with pesto, anchovies and the local white wine. Cinque Terre is located off the Ligurian Sea which makes the daily caught seafood a delicious must have. It is also the origin of the best pesto in the world and pairs well with the local white wine.
