Cafe Gilli

This is one of the must do cafes in Florence. The not so hungry and the lazy us decided to barge in, in the middle of the afternoon for some coffee and cakes. Just because. Simple frescoes, grand bar, arched door with a big clock adorn this place. ...

La Boite

A little cafe that the hubster liked, in the city center and wanted to stop for a coffee and croissant. Kept is very simple, and very quick. Filed under: Coffee/ Tea, Italy Tagged: cafe, city center, coffee, firenze, florence, la boite, tea, tuscan, ...

Trattoria Giovanni

So, for the hubster, this was kept a lazy day too. An early dinner – read just waiting for the restaurant to open and get in, not far from the place where we were staying. I had read about a Trattoria Giovanni, but think this wasn’t the ...

Osteria I Buongustai

We arrived in Florence, it was a 4ish hour train ride from Salerno. The place where we were staying turned out to be a bit of a disappointment (and a bit farther than I’d pictured) and I wanted to get into a good place to eat a late lunch ...

Puro Cafe

This was a nice cafe right outside the station at Salerno. Salerno would be a stop to get to Amalfi or Positano, if not Sorrento. This was our stop going to and from. Coming in, it was just about time for our bus to Amalfi, so we skipped this. Going ...

Dal Presidente Pizzeria

Travel time: 3+ Hours Start at Amalfi. Take a bus to Sorrento. Take a train to Naples. Walk a bit. Only a foodie would do that, right? The place was big. The pizza was great. But did not change my life. I might have repeated this earlier, I will say ...

Barbarossa

This lunch stop in Capri was good. The place was touristy? How do I know, you ask? My yardstick for measurement was the price of wine

La Caravella

Second dinner in Italy alone! The server popped open a bottle of Moscato. Quite charming, this server. Brown bread with fennel. Soft inside, crusty outside, but less crusty than Da Gemma. The best breadsticks I’ve eaten. No effort to eat it at ...

Trattoria Da Cumpa Cosimo

So this one was bookmarked too. And we went in early, to be able to get back on a bus to Amalfi. So, the place was empty. A server came down, putting his apron. My first thought was that my craving for authentic Italian food will not be satisfied ...

Khaophums Fine Thai Restaurant

On this July 4th long weekend, on our trip from Jersey City to Portsmouth, this was our first meal stop, not counting the ice cream we had at a McDonald’s in a service area enroute. The food was OK. The service was OK.  We ordered the ...
