In May my wife and I are looking forward to a 17 night, 18 day, stay in Italy. 7 nights in Rome, 3 nights in Venice, 4 nights in Florence. We're both past 50 and slim (not anorexic, just normal). I'm wondering if anyone can recommend tasty places to eat that won't break the bank. I want to forgo fancy-schmancy touristy overblow for just easy and tasty with really good wine. For example, does anyone have a suggestion for where to eat deep fried artichoke in the Jewish Ghetto in Rome? Thanks.
