Vecio Fritolin
Calle della Regina 2262, Santa Croce, Venice; Tel.: 041-5222881
At this historic osteria near the Rialto fish market, Irina continues the tradition of founder Aristide, nicknamed "Fritolin," (the Old Fryer) who opened the place at the beginning of the 20th century. Traditional recipes using only the freshest ingredients are the mainstay. The take-away, mixed fried fish in a brown paper cone is a classic choice at both lunch and dinner, and includes tiny whole cuttlefish, whole baby sardines, a triglia (red mullet), several sizes of shrimp, nicely fried zucchini and fried polenta. Only olive oil is used to fry. Reservations essential.

Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Piazza della Rotonda, Rome; Tel.: 06-6869097
This is the best of the cafes that face the Pantheon. It's also one of the few with a full restaurant menu, where you can get a meal anytime of the day or night, and it sure beats the Golden Arches, which sits on the opposite side of the Piazza!
