8 Days in Rome, Florence, Tuscany region in May

Some friends and I will be visiting Rome and Florence in May for about 8 days. We have been to several times; however, it's our friends' first time. Any suggestions on where to eat would be greatly appreciated. We'd like some choices for economical lunches and then a few not-to-be missed dinner spots at affordable prices, trattorias, and maybe a one higher-end meal in each city. We don't have names of places from our previous visits unfortunately.

Thanks so much. I was wondering if we were going to have to rent a car for a day. I'm going to make a list before we go so we can maximize our time. Thanks!

Great ideas. My husband is an amateur photographer so he'll love taking pics inthe neighborhood. We'll skip Skillet, I think. Don't want diner food and just buy the bacon jam like suggested.

First in Seattle Where to Get Great Food

Have to say I absolutely love this site. We travel often and I will always check here before going anywhere.

So the question is, my husband and our 16 y/o daughter are visiting November 9 - 13 for the first time. We are spending 3 nights in Seattle and 1 night in Victoria BC. We like places that aren't too noisy but interesting decor and exceptional food. Any recommendations for places we should not miss that aren't outrageously expensive -- well, maybe one dinner.

Here are some of the ideas of places that looked like something we'd like:

For pizza Via Tribunali
Quinn's
Skillet -- purely for the bacon jam
Palace Kitchen
Tamarind Tree
Spur
Salumi
Spinasse
Bakery nouveau -- for pastries
Victrola Cafe for coffee/espresso
Portage Bay Cafe
Sitka & Spruce

We really appreciate opinions on what not to miss and what to skip.
