7. Hard Rock Cafe, Venice
The name may sound cliche, but you’ll adore its fantastic location right by the canal and gondolas, and have fun at Hard Rock Cafe Social Parties. You should order a glass of Venice’s traditional cocktail, Bellini. If you like peaches, you’ll love it.

6. Pompi, Rome
The best tiramisu on earth. Grab one and eat it on the Spanish Steps. They also have strawberry tiramisu and other desserts.

5. Amorino, Milan
Amorino is a very popular Italian Gelato brand which has branches all over Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Their ice-cream is in the shape of a rose. You can also ask for a macaron on top. It looks so pretty!
4. Chianineria – Trattoria dall’Oste, Florence
One of the most popular restaurants to eat Florentine steak and drink Chianti wine, the absolute must of Florence.
Via dei Cerchi, 40/R, 50122 Firenze
3. All’ Antico Vinao, Florence
After visiting the Uffizi Gallery you should definitely go and have a sandwich here. They have a various selection of fresh bread, dried meat, and vegetables. It’s very affordable, so it’s usually quite busy.
Via dei Neri, 74/R, 50100 Firenze
2. Pastificio, Rome
Another cheap, take away eat on the Spanish Steps. A pasta shop which offers two different types of pasta. They change the menu regularly so you might not be able to find the same exact pasta the next day, so don’t miss the opportunity once you’re there.
Via della Croce, 8, 00187 Roma
1. Pizzeria Spontini, Milan
You can find a Spontini in most parts of Milan, but we suggest that you try out the original one in Spontini. Don’t expect thin and crusty pizza here. Their pizza is American style. Fluffy and yummy. They only have three types of pizza, but less is more! It’s also very affordable and fast. If you’re going to Milan, don’t leave the city without trying a slice.
Via Gaspare Spontini, 4, 20129 Milano
