Trattoria L'Ippocampo
Via Marina, 43, Conca dei Marini; Tel.: 089-831153; mobile 338-3161642
L'ippocampo is the last genuine fishermen restaurant on the Amalfi coast. The Laudano brothers, who run this small trattoria, are both professional fishermen and they catch the ingredients used in the kitchen - that means the fish carpaccio is super-fresh and shouldn't be missed. "From the sea to the plate" is this restaurant's motto, and the prices are very reasonable too! The atmosphere is traditional and relaxed, immersed in a cove just five minutes from Amalfi with free shuttle boat service from/to Amalfi's harbor.

Caffe' Torino
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Piazza San Carlo, 4, Turin; Tel.: 011-545118
This imposing place on the Piazza San Carlo, which opened its doors in 1903, was the haunt of politicians like Einaudi and De Gaspari. In a scallop shell behind the old-fashioned bar stands the rampant bull (toro) which has been the city symbol since Torino was a Roman colony known as Augusta Taurinorum. A great place for an aperitivo, accompanied by the huge array of free munchies that is laid out on the bar.
