Florence: Cibreo and Latini. Mercato Centrale.
Book: Routard Italy.

In Florence, definitely visit the St. Ambrogio market. FABULOUS! One of my favorite restaurants is the Birreria Centrale on Piazza Cimatori. Teatro del Sale makes for a wonderful night- great food, a performance, the spectacle of chef Fabio Picchi. Le Volpe e l'uva is a fun wine bar on the Oltrarno.

In Venice, the seafood market is a blast. And SoSu, a gelateria near the Rialto, was the best we had in Italy.

Have fun!

Elizabeth Minchilli has Apps for both Venice and Florence. She only had the one for Rome last time I was in Italy but it was wonderful! www.elizabethminchilliinrome...

In Venezia, Corte Sconto, if you can find it. The name literally means hidden court. Terrific seafood. Don't order just let them bring it.

We always go to Ponte Vecchio restaurante in Florence for their sachette with white truffle sauce. Also a great pizza place across the street from palazzo Ferroni .

In Venice try the rooftop dining for lunch at hotel Danieli. Beware - it is not cheap!

In addition to Danieli, at the upper end of the price spectrum, try Harry's Bar (the real one, the one owned by the Ciprianis). The kitchen is fantastic. If nothing else stop in for a Bellini.

Pierino is right (high budget) just remember that Harrys require certain clothing (no capris)

Thank you so much, everyone! My friend is thrilled to have these suggestions and when she leaves on Saturday, she will carry your ideas, salivating all the way.
