Martina, Maja, Malina, and Arianna outside of Sibenik
It was the part of my European visit that I was most looking forward to, after an intense week of winery visits in Franciacorta, Piedmont, and Rome.

L'Orso 80
Via dell'Orso, 33, Rome; Tel.: 06-6864904 / 06-6861710
In-the-know locals having been coming to this nondescript trattoria behind Piazza Navona for years to feast on the amazing antipasti selection: mushrooms with whole peppercorns, succulent baby artichokes, cauliflower with capers, fresh mozzarella, fried zucchini fingers, beans in tomato sauce, spinach frittata and melt-in-your-mouth meatballs. The food arrives at your table as a seemingly endless array of dishes from which you help yourself. If you still have room, there's pizza, pasta or fresh grilled fish to follow. Reservations recommended.

Gran Ristoro
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Via Sottoripa, 27r, Genoa; Tel.: 010-2473127
This tiny closet of a sandwich shop across from the Porto Antico is so small that you’d walk right past it if not for the line of Genoese of all stripes — cops, students, dock workers — extending out the door. The printed menu is minimal so just ask for a toasted sandwich, served on a fresh roll with your choice of one of the dozens of meats (prosciutto, capicola, pancetta, spianata) hanging in the window. At less than 3,00 euros, you won’t find a better lunch bargain!
