Eating reasonably in Central and Northern Italy

leftover_salmon | May 26, 2010 02:28 PM

I just graduated college and am spending two weeks in Italy with a couple friends as a postgrad vacation. Being poor college students, we can't afford to eat well every night and would like to spend no more than 60-70 euros per day on food (even less would be better).

We're spending 4 days in Rome, 4 in Florence, and 2 in each of Bologna, Cinque Terre and Venice. Obviously there are tons of threads on eating in these places, but I'd like to consolidate a shortlist of reasonably priced restaurants in these cities (rather than look at 50 different threads with 1000 different restaurants named).

So, if everyone who answered here could just give 2-3 restaurants in each city (and any attractions they may be near), that'd go a long way.

Also, we're planning on having 3-4 nice dinners total (let's say 60 euros per person), so if anyone knows any worthwhile restaurants in these cities that fits that bill, add those too. The less touristy for any of this, the better. Thanks!
