Recommendations - Whirlwind Rome / Florence / Venice Food Tour

Hi everyone,

My wife and I are going for a short whirlwind tour in Italy that will be mostly centered around food. We'll have 3 nights in Rome, 2 nights in Florence, and 1 night in Venice.

I have been spending a lot of time researching restaurants, and I'm VERY overwhelmed by the options! It's my wife's first time in Italy and I really want to show her some of the best food that Italy has to offer.

Our focus is mainly on finding amazing food, we don't care much about atmosphere or service, and we're willing to travel out of the way for good food.

We're hoping to select a good "mix" of experiences: high-end restaurants, casual dining, standing, off-the-beaten-path. And we're especially interested in trying some "must-eat" options (e.g. don't leave Rome/Florence/Venice without trying this!).

Can anyone recommend their top choices for a short itinerary like ours?

I know there are a ton of similar posts, and I've honestly read through many of them, but I was hoping this post could trigger some advice for our specific scenario. And hopefully this could help others with similar scenarios.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
