  • Virtually useless

    This app was a waste of money for me on my recent trip to Rome. On the technical side, I purchased the Rome package. It would load on my iPad 2 Air, but not on my iPhone SE. I didn't want to be lugging an iPad around with me, so its use was limited to where the iPad was; i.e. In the hotel room and lobby. Eighty percent of the app's potential functionality was lost right off the bat. At first I was disappointed, but after reading on my iPad how superficial and general the information provided by the app was, my disappointment at its lack of functionality magically evaporated, replaced by a vague feeling of, once again, being had by an app's author whose product substantially undershoots its implied content. My advice: don't bother with this; at least the Rome package.

    Don't plan your trip to Italy without this APP or her book Eating Rome. Take the time to explore, read, take notes, and then map out your trip. Foodies, it's worth every minute spent. You can't (she doesn't!!!) go wrong.
  • Nearby Function Needs Improvement

    Eat Italy is an umbrella app that allows you to access all of the author’s individual guides (Rome, Venice, etc.) in one place on your phone. The app gives a list of restaurants, markets, hotels, and other locations of interest to the tourist, culled from the author's blog. We ate at many of the restaurants listed in the Rome guide and some in Florence. The restaurants that we were able to eat at were fine, although there seemed to be a bias to lighter fare. A couple of the places were closed for renovation during the time we visited. The biggest issue with the app is trying to find recommendations that are close when you are out sightseeing. The "Nearby" function does not work very well. There is a map showing the location of all restaurants, but it using it to find a place required switching back and forth between Google Maps and the app to really understand where you wanted to be going. On the whole, especially given how the cost of each city guide mounts up if you are traveling to multiple destinations, I did not find this more useful than checking the reviews in Google Maps and perhaps saving addresses to check out from various blogs, including the author's. There are so many free resources that are good and accessible on your smartphone that I can't recommend spending the money on this one.
  • Fabulous restaurant app

    Downloading this app is the smartest thing I did for my trips to Rome and Florence! Fabulous up to date restaurant and shopping lists! Just finished yet another fabulous dinner, this time at broccoletti in monti! Thank you for doing all the work on this!
  • Must Have App in Rome

    We loved this app when we were in Rome. It is the perfect complement to the Eating Rome book, which had me salivating months before departure. The app was easy to use and guided us in the right direction at every meal. My only complaint is that there are so many wonderful recommendations, it's impossible to visit them all in one trip! We will look forward to using this app on future trips to Italy and happily avoid the tourist traps and other dining pitfalls that tend to befall less savvy travelers. Thanks Elizabeth for creating this gem of an app!

    this summer while we were vacationing in Rome and Florence we made good use of both apps and have loved every single restaurant recommendation. If you don't speak the Italian language except for some phrases we've learned over the years, you are so appreciative of apps like eat Italy - grazie mille, Elizabeth!
  • Not with the money

    I purchased both Eat Rome and Eat Venice for a recent trip. Did not find them especially helpful and some of the info was unreliable. Trip Advisor reviews were better- and free.

    My family and I relied on this app during our vacation in Italy, and we enjoyed some fantastic meals using the recommendations. One particular meal in Florence was beyond belief and is remembered by all of us as the best meal we've ever had! Highly recommended!!
