Florence, Lucca, Venice

I know, it's August, and lots of places are closed... but still looking for excellent casual places in these cities. All suggestions appreciated!

  1. Dalla Marisa in Venice is about as informal as you can get. It's in the back streets, where few tourists ever venture, and there's no menu - you just get whatever they've decided to cook that day. Tasty, filling food - just what you need to sustain you through a hard day's sightseeing...

      Nerbone in the Mercato Central in Florence.
      VinoVino in Venice.
