**Tip** In Italy most authentic Italian restaurants will serve bread and bring olive oil to the table with out any plates to eat the bread on. This is normal, the paper that is on top of the table basically acts as your plate. If you want to be a tourist you can ask for some plates for your bread.

Gusta Pizzeria

In my opinion the best pizza in all of Italy. This is an overwhelming favorite for all the study abroad students for lunch. You will fall in love with this pizza and you will return a second or third time during your trip. Find a seat inside to watch them make the pizza in front of you or take it to go and sit out in the beautiful sun in the nearby Piazza Santo Spirito.

Price: 5-8 Euro

Anita Trattoria 

If you are looking for an authentic Italian restaurant, a local hole in the wall that is hard to find but amazing once you find it then look no further. Owned and operated by 3 brothers that make you feel like family, making jokes and calling you babies if you do not finish your plate. Great food and great prices, as little as 8 Euros for a liter of house wine. 

**Directions**: If looking at the fake David walk past it on the right, walk to the street and turn left. Your next right will be a dark ally with a small sign on wall saying trattoria Anita. Walk down the scary dark ally and you will find this hidden gem!

L'Antico Noe- (Panini lunch spot) Looking for some amazing panini's look no further 5 minute walk from the Duomo right next to the pub Lions fountain you will find a small storefront with a long line for lunch. Cheap, simple, and delicious. The menu is written on a board directly as you walk in so even if you can not speak much Italian you can always just tell him which number you want. A couple tables outside to eat at but more of a walk away sandwich shop. Perfect lunch spot while walking through the city.

Gato y Volpe-

I went there with a big group of my study abroad program and it was amazing. We ordered family style which consisting of: all you can drink wine, antipasti that could feed ten or more people, three types of pastas, and much more! The waiters were super friendly and outgoing, the location was easy to walk to, and the overall atmosphere was lively.
