Ever After Eats

Italy Ever After Eats

Roma

Forno Campo De Fiori – Pizza on the go.

Settimio Al Pellegrino – Authentic Italian restaurant visited by locals.

Positano

Bruno – Great dinner spot overlooking the sea and hills of Positano especially during sunset. The Pisci Carpaccio, a unique dish to the region, a delicious antipasti with fresh large pieces of the fish of the day.

Next2 – A modern restaurant only opened for dinner by chef Tanina Vanacore and has both indoor and outdoor seating. Anything you order will be delicious because the menu offers different combinations than the regular torttaria and they use fresh ingredients. Be sure to try the Zuccini flower and Fried Pizza. We suggest the Trio antipasti because you can taste three of their most popular options.

Cassa e Bottega – The second restaurant by chef Tanina Vanacore only opened during the day. It is a modern and beautiful indoor cafe with a beach vibe. Menu includes salads, sandwiches and a daily hot option. You can go for breakfast, lunch, cocktail or cappuccino and dessert. Desserts are baked daily and if they have it, we would suggest the Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake, very light and fluffy!

Ravello

Caruso Restaurant – At the luxurious Hotel Caruso built on an enormous beautiful piece of property that overlooks the mountains and Amalfi coast. A night stay is very expensive but you can enjoy the view from the restaurant for dinner or even an apertivo just be sure to make a reservation since they are very protective over their guests and try to keep random visitors from their pool.

Capri

Buonocore – An inexpensive cafe with many options that you can take away or sit in if you are lucky enough to find seating. Gelato here is amazing! They make their cones on the spot so you may even get a warm one if you get there at the right moment!

Naples

Restaurante Europe – Classic Napoli pizza with the soupy center, leopard crust, buffalo mozzarella from Campania and eaten with a fork and steak knife. Don’t bother having desert there but the Pizza is delicious and reviewed as one of the best in the city.

Siena

La Taverna de San Giuseppe – Reservation required. This spot is a must!! Authentic Italian pasta and meat dishes influenced by Tuscany. The entire restaurant space was built in the Middle Ages, has been used as a wine cellar and part of it still remains. There is a truffle menu with daily specials where the waiter grates truffle onto your plate which is common for restaurants in the city since truffles are picked approximately 60 kilometers away in Tuscany. Truffles depreciate in flavor as soon as they are picked so they don’t lose as much freshness in the travel period.

Kopa Kabana – Great gelato!

Florence

Vini e Vecchi Sapori – An authentic small osteria that serves tasty creative dishes including duck ragu pappardelle, pumpkin soup and safron risotto ranging from 7-14 euro. Although you may get lucky getting a table during lunch hour, reservations are mandatory and necessary.

Vivoli – They have a large laboratory in their kitchen and make many different flavors including Rice, Merengue and Macadamia to name a few.

Paris Ever After Eats

Champs-Elysses

Ladurée – The famous macaron bakery on Champs-Elysses cannot be missed. There are dozens of bright colors and unique flavors which makes a fun buying experience.

Relais de L’Entrecote – You take a seat and the only question you are asked is “How do you like your meat?” The menu is a set menu which consists of a Waldorf salad as a starter and steak frites for the main. The place is first come, first serve so arrive fifteen minutes before opening (7 PM) to be assured a table.

Le Marais

Breizh Cafe – Go after 4PM if you just want a desert crepe but the buckwheat savory crepes are delicious and filling for lunch.

Christian Vabret Boulangerie

L’As du Fallafel – It’s the best falafel in Paris. Lines are way too long on Sundays so go during the week.

Minh Chau – If you feel like switching it up for a meal, try this small
restaurant for great Vietnamese. We passed by and knew we were at a great place because of all the local Parisian diners.

Le Mary Celeste – Fun, hipster cocktail bar serving creative dishes with only fresh ingredients. We heard about their deviled eggs which you will not find on the menu so be sure to ask. The cocktail menu is always changing but the bartenders/mixologists are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Poilane – We got an apple tart to share and still have regrets not
getting our own.

Saint Germain

Le Golfe de Naples – French style pizza. Order any pizza the French way with
a fried egg on top.

Île Saint Louis

La Maison Berthillon – Well known ice cream brand sold at many cafés but also has a restaurant. We suggest the Caramel-Buerre Salé

VI Arrondissement

La patisserie des Reves – It’s not the traditional Parisian patisserie,
pastries are displayed like an art gallery under glass bulbs and ordered for take out.

XIX Arrondissement

Veronique Mauclerc – Though it is pretty far from the center, if you happen to be in the 19th Arrondissement check out this boulangerie selling unique organic breads and pastries.

Spain Ever After Eats

Eating tapas, small plates, is the way to dine here. Classic tapas include patatas bravas, pesciditos fritos and salmajero ( a creamy tomato soup)

Barcelona

Quimet i Quimet
Very traditional tapas bar. Great for an apertif on your way to dinner. It’s very crowded and you have to push your way to get to the bar but that’s part of the fun here.

Seville

Alvaro Peregil La Goleta
Oranges from the Cathedral of Seville have been made famous because they are the orange of choice for the homemade marmalade of  the Queen of England. Although the oranges don’t come from the same spot, the 1.5 Euro homemade vino de naranja from this bar make it worth a try.

El Rinconcillo
Established in 1670, making this one of the oldest bars in Sevilla. The bar tenders write your order’s on the bar during the time you’re there. A lively place for locals of all ages to gather any day of the week.

London Ever After Eats

Jubilee Tea Salon
Although it is now mainly a tourist attraction, they have been selling their own brand of tea since 1707. There is no better place for high tea than the classic Jubilee Tea Salon on the fourth floor of Fortnum and Mason.

Itsu
This is a really good and relatively inexpensive Japanese casual dining chain. We ate here, took food to go, and even used the rest of our British Pounds to grab a meal for the plane at the Heathrow location. We strongly recommend the dumpling soup. Insider tip- 30 minutes before the store closes, you can save 50% on ready made meals.

Imli Street
Indian food has pretty much become the national food of England. This Indian fusion tapas restaurant takes a new approach to classic Indian dishes.
