Cantinetta dei Verrazzano, Florence, Italy

Cantinetta dei Verrazzano is a place that I would probably be a regular at if I lived in Florence. It’s on a street with 2 other really awesome places to eat are – Ristorante Paoli and a gelato place called Perche No! – I’d definitely call this food street.

Ristorante Cecio, Cinque Terre, Italy

On our day trip to Cinque Terre from Florence with Walkabout Tours, our tour came with lunch at Ristorante Cecio in Corniglia. There were about 80 people on our tour, so we took over the entire restaurant.

Ristorante Paoli, Florence, Italy

After a nice day site seeing the Tuscan Wine Country with CAF Tours, we asked our tour guide where we can get the best Florentine Steak in Florence. Her answer was Ristorante Paoli, and she walked us over to the restaurant in the pouring rain. This was an excellent recommendation, and so were her others.

Lorenzo de Medici, Florence, Italy

Upon arriving in Florence from Rome, we were really hungry. We arrived at around 3PM, and found that many of the restaurants were closed. Lorenzo de Medici was one of the few who still had their kitchens open.

ReCafe, Rome, Italy

After a brief walk through the Spanish Steps, which was a bit disappointing (due to construction), we made it to ReCafe. This is a nice trendy looking place with a large patio. They serve lots of good pizzas here.

An Pho Vietnamese Restaurant, Surrey

We came across An Pho Vietnamese Restaurant while trying a ‘new’ Mexican restaurant that’s just next door. We quickly learned that this pho restaurant has excellent reviews, and made a plan to have a meal here. There are a lot of Vietnamese dishes here other than pho. I was happy to see steamed rice rolls were […]

Il Pescato Cucinato, Cinque Terre, Italy

At the end of our day trip to Cinque Terre, we were allowed to rome around the first city, Riomaggiore. This place has beautiful colourful houses right on the cliff by the water. They also have excellent seafood.

Oppio Cafe, Rome, Italy

After a trip to the Colosseum, we were starving, or at least I was. So we looked around the area and found Oppio Cafe just up some steps. We wanted to stay in the area to visit the Roman Forum afterwards.

Roma Beer Company, Rome, Italy

After a hot day of walking around Rome for site seeing, we went to the Piazza Camp de’ Fiori looking for a quick snack. We actually passed this place once, but we ended up coming back. A nice cold beer or two sounded really good.

Village Sushi, Surrey

I’ve been craving sushi and wanted to try a new place, so I took a short drive to Village Sushi in Cloverdale. Right off the bat, this seems like a local’s favourte spot, lots of customers, which was a good sign. I ordered a few dishes to share with a friend because there were some interesting […]

Thai New West, New Westminster

Thai New West is a cozy little place in New West with delicious authentic food! For every entree dish, you can choose spice level from 1 to 5 – we went with a level 2 with every dish to stay on the mild side. The satay chicken was actually very juicy, and pairing it with […]
