Pane e Vino
Restaurant
Piazza di Cestello, 3r, Florence; Tel.: 055-2476956
Here they have an incredible wine list and a great menu to highlight their wines. It's almost impossible to order unless you have an idea of what you like to drink; it's best to let them help you choose to get the most out of the experience. They also have a great selection of dessert wines to complete the meal. Their new location in Piazza di Cestello offers a couple of tables for outdoor dining in a spacious, riverside plaza which is also a parking lot. Open for dinner only; reservations recommended.

Caffe' del Doge
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Calle dei Cinque, San Polo 608-609-610, Venice; Tel.: 041-5227787
There are no signs for this coffee place near the Rialto but on the main street leading to the market you'll see a red Doge's hat in the distance. That's the sign for this coffee roaster and cafe' where you can enjoy a full range of coffee blends and and drinks like the 'Marocchino" (chocolate chips, espresso, cocoa powder and milk) or the "Cremino" (a tall glass with overlaid layers of vanilla custard and espresso, with whipped cream on top). Their products are for sale online, and they have branches in Palo Alto, California and New York City, too.
