Top 10 Cheap Restaurants in Italy
Destination(s): Florence

Want to sample some of the best Italian cuisine without taking out a second mortgage? Use our top 10 cheap restaurants in Italy as a guide to plan your meals while in the country. La Colombina features delicious fare from the northern and southern parts of Italy. We prefer the sea bass ravioli and the daily fresh fish specials are not to be missed. Pastarito Pizzarito is a chain restaurant with locations all over the country, and you can select your own ingredients for your pasta or pizza dish. Lorenzaccio has a wood burning pizza oven and we highly suggest you try the calzone, but you'll need luck and a huge appetite to finish it. Anice Stellato features traditional Venetian fare and is popular with the locals. It is rather hard to find, but it's well worth the effort. Make sure to sample the fare at these delicious yet reasonable restaurants on your Italian adventure. read more about Top 10 Cheap Restaurants in Italy... Read More
