Italy restaurants-language barrier

janicejoel | Jul 20, 2009 10:45 PM

I'm looking forward to eating great food in Rome, Florence, Bologna and Venice -- but I don't speak a word of Italian! Does anybody have any suggestions to help me with ordering? Are there any pocket dictionaries that handle food words better than others? Are some types of restaurants better than others for just putting yourself in the waiter's hands? Thanks for any help!
