    In Florence in the Piazza Spirito, there is a place around the corner called Gusta Pizza! It is the most absolute, amazing, fresh, stone oven-ed pizza! Right by a church and on some days, there is an open market.

    Rome:

    Great pizza at Pizza Forum, right by the Colosseum. My husband grew up in Rome, and ate there as far back as 25 years ago. New ownership, but they are still from Napoli and their wood oven pizza is insanely good. We just ate there over Christmas again while visiting his family. I know it's a touristy area, but it is top notch.

    Roman style pizza I Gerani da Peppe is awesome! We visit every time we go. It's a bit out of the touristy area, but really good...thin..and 18 inches. I posted about it on my blog just recently.

    If you love seafood like l do, you will love Papetto Srl. It is a fixed price €35 per person, and you get like 12 courses, from seafood ravioli, to calamari, to fish, shrimp, mussels marinara etc, and all the white or red house wine you can drink. You won't hear any English here. It's outside the touristy area too, but worth it.

    Have fun!

    Rome: Almost all of the best restaurants are (thankfully) in old-world Italian style. Here are some of my favorites, although I listed a few SLIGHTLY trendier options (trendy for Rome anyway) since they are few and far between:

    Osteria del Tempo Perso - Right of Piazza del Popolo. Lived above it and used to eat here all the time. Delicious Stop for a drink across the street at Hotel Locarno Rome if you are looking for something a bit swanky in Rome.

    Monzù Vladi- Trastevere, Best mozzarella in the city. Owner's name is Sam and he serves some of the best food in Roma. I think it is closed on Tuesdays? Stop by Freni e Frizioni nearby for an apertivo - definitely a bit "Italian Trendy" (read a little kitshy) but really fun spot for locals and tourists alike.

    Antica Enoteca - Definitely on TripAdvisor, but for GOOD reason...Another absolute must-visit in Rome and perfect for a late lunch or aperitif near the Spanish Steps. Eggplant parm is amazing, as is the pizza.

    Cul De Sac - Another favorite behind Piazza Navona. Amazing wine collection and true rustic Roman fare. Check out Frigidarium nearby for gelato - probably not hte MOST authentic but it's delicious.

    'Gusto - Don't know if this has become popular, but good if you're looking for something a bit trendier


    Hope this helps!

    1. Florence: I second Gusta Pizza! It's out of this world. And actually, the 'Gusta' brothers own three restaurants in the same piazza (Piazza Santo Spirito). Gusta Osteria has an incredible lasagna, and Gusta Panino is all about meaty sandwiches. Try them all! Next door is Volume for a drink and some live music!
    2. Milan: For pizza, go to I Capatosta. Dinner at Giulio Pane e Ojo (they also have a huge lunch + wine on weekdays for 10 euros). And a real gem, U Barba! A really local place with a fantastic atmosphere and baci ball court outside.

    Enjoy!

    Spent a few weeks in Rome & Florence over the holidays. Top Roma restaurants for me were Berzitello Ristorante, and Ristorante Meridionale. Also, for real local food, you have to check out the Testaccio area. Volpetti deli is unbelievably good. Also, much fewer tourists to deal with around there.

    For Firenze, grab ALL the sandwiches at 'Ino. Loved that place, and didn't have to deal with tourists there either, despite how close it is to Ponte Vecchio. Upstairs of the Mercato Centrale Market is a good spot to chill out for a few, over wine and polpettes. If you want something other than Italian one night, there's a decent Dim Sum joint at Dim Sum Restaurant, but save coffee for Ditta Artigianale opposite.
