Agata e Romeo
Via Carlo Alberto, 45, Rome; Tel.: 06-4466115
This striking duplex restaurant is named for the two owners, Romeo in the dining room and his wife, Agata, at the stove. The food shows a sophisticated use of traditional Roman ingredients: pasta garnished with broccoli and cauliflower and served in skate broth, or medallions of tuna coated with sesame seeds and served in a sweet and sour sauce. For dessert, consider Agata's homemade millefoglie, a puff pastry stuffed with almonds and sweetened cream. Well-stocked wine cellar.

Caffe Centrale
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Via Roma, 72, Asolo; Tel.: 0423-952141
The Botter brothers have a farm in the hills outside Asolo where they grow juicy Marostica cherries that they make into jam to be sold in their cafe on the shady main square of Asolo, with outside tables with a beautiful view of the fountain. Stop here for a cappuccino and a cherry-stuffed pastry, and watch the world go by!
