  1. To be honest we were hugely disappointed with Italian cuisine. I mean, if you have a lot of money you can eat well (anywhere), but if you’re on a budget, your options in Italy are very limited!
    If you try to cook your own food, local supermarkets will sell you 50 types of tomato sauce but that’s it, you won’t get any other sauces (well, maybe apart from pesto, occasionally).
    In our opinion Italian food is hugely overrated and really expensive, and the ‘coperto’ charge is really annoying too. You think your coffee will cost 1,50 Eur but you are wrong, there is a cheeky service charge attached to everything!!!

    1. I noticed in some touristy areas in Italy they do that, however a more locally inclined restaurants only charge you exactly how much it is on the tag. Then again, if you’re traveling in a limited time then you there’s no time to find those places but rather get the cheapest you can get from the rip off places which is abundant in tourist areas.
