Venice-Florence-Rome: Top 5 casual eats

  • 4
  • Share

My husband and I are going to Italy for the first time this Friday and will be staying in Venice 2 days, Florence 3 days and Rome 4 days. We're excited and want your Top 5 casual eats at each of the 3 places.

I know there's a lot of existing posts on the 3 cities but it's hard to pinpoint the top of the top from the vast number of posts....we don't want to spend a lot of money so what are your recommendations for lunch or dinner?

Thanks so much for your help!

      Thank you David!
      Do you have recommendations as well?

        The boiled beef sandwich at the Nerbone food stall in Florence's Mercato Centrale is not to be missed.

    2. Just got back from Italy yesterday, and spent some time in Florence and Rome. For casual, I really liked Tonino in Rome and Antica Mescita San Niccolo in Florence. Enjoy! Not exactly casual, but also not at all stuffy - the cacio e pepe (w/ tonnarelli here) at Vine e Camino made me very happy.
