Villa Margherita

Ristorante Villa Margherita Via Campo di Teste 4 80076 Capri NA Italy TripAdvisor I didn’t know this about Capri before planning our trip, but the island has a low season.  Many hotels, ours included, close for the fall/winter time.  We were lucky to plan things out before this low season started, but I could tell…

L’Angolo Del Gusto

L’Angolo Del Gusto Via Boffe 2 80071 Anacapri NA Italy TripAdvisor Toward the end of any long trip, the laziness starts to kick in.  Sight seeing becomes less important.  Sloth like activity level becomes routine.  The Amalfi Coast is not a bad place to be lazy, since the place is mostly about enjoying the beautiful…

Da Vincenzo

Da Vincenzo Viale Pasitea 172/178 84017 Positano SA Italy TripAdvisor Da Vincenzo had pretty solid reviews.  Some fellow hotel guests even told us it was the BEST meal they’ve had in Positano.  I was glad I made reservations in advance.  The place was full and had quite a few parties waiting.  We just waltzed right…

La Taverna del Leone

La Taverna del Leone Via Laurito 43 84017 Positano SA Italy TripAdvisor I just found this by looking to see what had good reviews close by.  It was such a short walk from our hotel, which made it so convenient.  Walking is probably not the intended means of transportation in this part of the Amalfi Coast,…

Next2

Next2 Viale Pasitea 242 84017 Positano SA Italy TripAdvisor Next2 came highly recommended by a friend of The Annoyer.  It seemed to be one of the nicer establishments in Positano. Sfogliatella Sfogliatella is an Italian pastry that resembles a lobster tail.  It is famous in Naples, but we did not have enough time to check…

Elisir di Positano

Elisir di Positano Cafe Viale Pasitea 90 84017 Positano SA Italy TripAdvisor Since our AMAZING hotel included complimentary breakfast, which we always caught pretty late, we tended to skip lunch.  This resulted in us getting hungry at odd times in the afternoon.  We stumbled across Elisir di Positano during exploration of this picturesque coastal town….

Il Ritrovo

Il Ritrovo Via Montepertuso 77 84017 Positano SA Italy TripAdvisor There were so many decisions to make about the Amalfi Coast.  Where to stay, what cities to visit, how to get around, and of course where to eat!  Our time was limited, so we decided to park ourselves in Positano and visit the other cities….

Pizzeria Starita a Materdei

Pizzeria Starita a Materdei Via Materdei 27/28 80136 Napoli NA Italy TripAdvisor Naples is well regarded as the the birth place of pizza as we know it today.  To Italians, a pizza is really only 4 things, dough/bread, tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil.  The additions of pepperoni, sausage, peppers, mushroom, or the blasphemous renditions with pineapple…

Colline Emiliane

Colline Emiliane Via degli Avignonesi 22 00187 Roma RM Italy TripAdvisor Whittling through the lists of recommended eats in Rome was quite the task. Reviews for any number of places would range from “outstanding” to “mediocre” so it became hard to find places that truly elicited true excitement.  The reviews for Colline Emiliane seemed solid…

I Dolci Di Nonna Vicenza

I Dolci Di Nonna Vicenza Via dell’Arco del Monte 98/A/B 00186 Roma RM Italy TripAdvisor I’d never given much thought about cannolis until visiting Boston.  The cannolis I had at Modern Pastry and Mike’s Pastry totally changed my opinion of this humble Italian sweet.  An awesome cannoli is worth an extra trek to find how…

Gelateria Grom

Gelateria Grom Via della Maddalena 30a 00186 Roma RM Italy TripAdvisor I never understood why people made such a big deal about gelato.  It just looked like a softer version of American ice cream.  I’ve had gelato before, and in Italy even, but that was YEARS ago before my love for food really kicked into…

Il Mercato Centrale Roma

Il Mercato Centrale Roma Roma Termini Via Giovanni Giolitti 36 00185 Roma RM Italy TripAdvisor “Food court” used to by synonymous with mediocre fast food in a designated area of a shopping mall.  In the last 20 years, the prototypical shopping mall has not been able to maintain the same foothold in the consumer culture…
