Greetings! I'm going to be in Milan for about four days next week (with a possible escape to Lake Como) and I'm on a tight budget, thanks to the dollar and my sudden lack of a job. Can anyone tell me where to go for good but very inexpensive food? My husband will be at a conference and I will be mostly on my own.
On our last trip to Italy, in May, we discovered that eating gelato three times a day helped stave off hunger pangs between the takeaway sandwiches for lunch and sharing a pizza and carafe of water for dinner. (I can't drink wine, sadly.) On this trip, I'd love to go beyond that (although I see no reason to skimp on my 3x-a-day-gelato habit). I'm perfectly happy with simple stuff like pasta, soup, and pizza. If anyone knows where one can SIT DOWN to have something very cheap but tasty in Milan, I'll be very grateful. Thanks!
