5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book May 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a great book to have. With the number of restaurants in the major tourist centers of Italy, many serving very mediocre food, it is nice to have a way to find some good places.
I have the 3rd edition of this book (published in 1999) which I just used during a trip to Rome. Even though that book is old, I found the recommended restaurants to still be excellent. I am sure that the current 4th edition is even better.
A key feature of the book was the maps showing the locations of the recommended restaurants. This made finding nearby restaurants very easy. The other book I used on my trip was "Gambero Rosso Rome." That book had no maps, so was very hard to use.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Help April 13 2003
Format:Paperback
We used the 3rd edition of this guide for a trip in 2001 to Florence, Venice & Rome.
The only bad meals we eat were when we didn't use the guide.
Al Fagianetto was near our hotel in Rome and we ended up eating lunch or dinner there nearly every day.
Many restaurants were out of the usual tourist areas but well worth the effort to find good food at reasonable prices.
We will surely use Gustafson's other guides in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Been there, done that Sept. 4 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A current and concise book with relevant helpful details for selecting a decent restaurant while traveling in Italy.
The resturants listed are largely a matter of taste, but in general are quite good. I never felt ripped off by any of the restaurants the author recommends. Her assessments were fairly accurate, although the dishes she describes aren't necessarily available.
One major criticism is the organzation of the material. The book isn't the easiest to follow. It requires flipping between pages and sections to gleen together map locations and specific information.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, not great June 29 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this book just for the Rome section and ripped it out to bring along. Most of the restaurants that we visited from here were just OK, not great. It still felt pretty hit or miss. Your best bet - skip books, get off the tourist track, find places that are busy with Italians eating in them and make your reservations for the next night. When we did that we were satisfied with every place we ate at.

Someone gave this to us for our honeymoon, and I was so pleased to find another copy to give to a friend for hers. After a few amazing recommendations in a row, we started using the guide for every single lunch and dinner, from the simplest pizza to the most luscious seafood recommendations, and it was spot on, every time. The best recommendation we followed was to go to Burano simply to eat at Il Gato Negro - unforgettable.

this book definitely made a difference in choosing restaurants in Italy, I read it before my trip, found the ones I wanted to try and I got rewarded with authentic jewish roman cuisine, one of the best pizzas ever, excellent bread,great pastas, granitas and gelatos. we went to restaurants that sometimes only the locals know, they are the best.Before traveling, research the place you are visiting, it makes for a more rewarding experience.
