Restaurants with $20-$30 entrees

Hi,
I'm trying to find some restaurants that aren't too expensive. We'll be in New York for 5 nights. We don't want anything pretentious or with tiny portions. We're not interested in Sushi. So far I have...

Apizz
Bianca
Bridge Cafe
Crispo
Da Andrea
Lupa
Piccolo Angolo
The Little Owl

Thanks!

Hmmm, I just replied but it did not show up for some reason.

Ok, I made some reservations. Please tell me what you think. We want to eat delicious food and would like to keep the entree prices at no more than 30 (dollars) give or take.

Rome:
La Piazetta
L' Angoletto

Florence:
La Giostra
Quattro Leoni

Venice:
Trattoria da Remigio

Lake Como:
Il Gatto Nero

Thanks.
I'm trying to decide if we should even go to Bellagio. I'm worried that we'll have too many things crammed in since we're only in each city for 2 nights. Is it really worth going?

Thanks, I will give them a call and see if they're open. Does anyone know how long the ferry ride is from Lake Como to Bellagio? I think we'll be taking a day trip there.

That is so helpful! Thank you so much. The fact that we're going in August is making it so difficult! I will definitely call and see if they're open.

I appreciate everyone's help. :) Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. I called Da Rioba and Alla Madonna and they will both be closed. Surprise, surprise. What about these? I still have to call and see if they're open though.

Trattoria da Remigio
Al Promessi Sposi
Osteria al Bomba

I know! Oh well, hopefully some of the other restaurants will be just as good.

I just called Teatro Del Sale to make reservations and they're going to be closed when we're there (we're going in August). I was really excited about that place :(

Thank you so much for your recommendations. It's very helpful. This will be our first trip to Italy and deciding on where to eat is suprisingly overwhelming!

Thank you. I did read your post (that's where I got the idea). From what you said, it sounds wonderful. I think we'll pick Teatro for dinner one night.

Hi,
We're taking a trip to Italy and Sicily and we need some suggestions for inexpensive restaurants in Rome, Venice, Florence, and Lake Como. We want to eat amazing food so if it's not delicious and inexpensive, that's ok. We'll spend more if we have to. I have read the recent posts on these but I can't decide on which restaurants to pick and if I should make reservations. From what I've read so far, I have these on the list to pick from. If you have been to them it would be helpful if you can you give some details on them. Also, if you have suggestions for the Palermo region that would be great.

Rome - 2 nights, no ideas yet.

Venice - 1 night

Trattoria Storica
Ostaria Da Rioba
Nono Resorto

Florence - 2 nights

Teatro Del Sale
Zibibbo
Trattoria Croce al Trebbio

Lake Como - 2 nights, no ideas yet

After this we'll be staying in Palermo for 10 nights. We'll spend one night in Taormina.
