My husband and I, both vegetarians are headed to Italy in a couple of weeks .. this is our first trip to Europe and to Italy and we are super excited. I'm researching places to dine for lunch/dinner in both Rome and Florence. I would love some suggestions and comments on places I have so far. We are looking for casual, cafe style places for the most part and one fancy dinner on our anniversary (Rome).
This is what I have gathered so far based on other posts from chowhound board and other travel forums..
Florence: (we are staying at Hotel Casci)
1) Buca dell Orafo
2) Tratoria la Casalinga
3) Tratoria Sergio Gozzi (lunch)
4) OSteria Cipolla Rossa
5) La Bussola pizzeria and wine bar
6) Trattoria da Sergio Frezzolini
Rome: (we are staying at Hotel Adriano in the Novona area)
1) Obika Mozzerella Bar
2) Da Bafetto or La Montecarlo for pizza
3) Caffe Mancini Ristorante
4) Osteria dell Ingego
5) Caffetteria Canova Tadolini
6) Otello alla Concordia
8) Sicilianbocca (near Vatican)
I've not narrowed down a place for our anniversary dinner. Any suggestions?
Also I'm finding most of the restaurant websites don't list prices on their menus. Is this common? We will mostly be eating pastas, pizzas, soups and cheese (no meat or seafood for us). How much can we expect a meal to cost at a trattoria?
Is it necessary to make reservations at most places?
