All'Osteria Bottega
Restaurant
Via Santa Caterina, 51, Bologna; Tel.: 051-585111
All'Osteria Bottega makes a slow-cooked ragu' alla Bolognese that's about as close as anything you'll find outside the house of one of this city's grandmothers. This tiny, 26-seat place with wood floors and painted furniture is overseen by its jovial owner, Daniele. Plates of mortadella and cheese are followed by dishes like freshly made tagliatelle con culatello (considered the most delicate part of a pork haunch), eggplant Parmesan and house specialties like grilled pigeon. Reservations highly recommended.

Caffe' Cibreo
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Via del Verrocchio, 5r
, Florence; Tel.: 055-2345853
Across the street from Cibreo Ristorante is this welcoming little cafe that is part of the Fabio Picchi empire. It is a good choice for an aperitivo, light lunch or an after dinner drink, especially in summertime when the outside tables make a pleasant place to sit and soak up the atmosphere of one of Florence's most characteristic neighborhoods.
