1) Ca D’Oro alla Vedova

Why:  Whoever created the term “hidden gem,” I’m pretty sure it was after eating at Alla Vedova. This Italian food goldmine is truly a gem, and truly hidden…in the corner of a little ally, off the main stretch. They have THE BEST meatballs, or polpettes, I have ever had in my life. I’m not even a meatball person, and these balls of meaty goodness are TO-DIE-FOR. They also have the best tomato sauce I have ever had. Hands down. Done. I was licking the plate (…I wish I was kidding). And the best part about it? They’ve got you covered for every hungry occasion. If you want a nice sit down meal, there are two cozy rooms off the side of the generally very-busy bar that provides you with wonderful service, and THE FOOD… But, if you’re on a #youngwildwanderingandhungry budget, you can grab some Italian style tapas to munch on, and have a drink while you’re at it. WARNING: On Friday and Saturday nights, this place is THE SPOT. So make a reservation if you want a table. If you want to grab a drink and some tapas, get yo’ assertive side on and be prepared to push your way through the door.

Price: Polpettes are 2€ a pop. Sit down meal is between 12-17 €. Trust me, it’s worth the splurge.

Find it: Cannareggio 3912

2) Trattoria Da Fiore

Why: This pasta seen above. With chicory (raddicchio treviso), Italian smoked caramelized ham (or Speck Alto Adíge)and walnuts, in a creamy gorgonzola sauce. Need I say more? ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
