Looking to visit Italy the last part of May for the first time.We will be doing the three cities listed over the course of eight days (I know...).
I have been reading all the recent posts and have mined Elizabeth Minchilli, Katie Parla and Maureen Fant for their recs
I would like a good sampling of the food scene for each city with one splurge and a look at the market scene and what is good at the restaurants. I don't mind spending for a splurge but rather look for good value for the money.

Venice (we are staying in Castello)
- Antiche Carampe
- Anice Stellato - for Sunday?
- Covino
- L'Orto dei Mori
- Il Refolo
- Trattoria du Fiore

Florence (we are staying a couple blocks north of Teatro Verdi)
- Mercato centrale
- Konnubio
- Bondi

Rome (we are staying just north of Termini)
- Testaccio market
- Armando al Pantheon
- Supplizio
- Emma
- Colline Emiliane
- Trattoria Monti
- Pianostrada
- Retrobottega
- Il Sorpasso

We plan on tours of the Vatican and Borghese Gallery. Some selections were made to accomodate these locations.

And lastly, what about pastries?
- De Bellis
- Roscioli
