  • 1. Trattoria La Carabaccia
    http://www.trattorialacarabaccia.com/en/restaurant.htm

    Fantastic restaurant in Florence with great Tuscan dishes and the service is great. The meat dishes and especially the spinach sauteed in olive oil & garlic are wonderful. The waiters especially love to spoil woman dining alone and they don't make you feel uncomfortable.

  • 2. Cipolla Rossa

    I came across this place while strolling around Florence one evening. It was quaint, quiet, warm and welcoming. I went in and had a wonderful dinner. The only thing is that the portions are pretty big, so if traveling alone be aware that the portions can feed 2. Other than that no complaints. The food is fresh and and the wine is great.

  • 3. Tritone Antica Trattoria
    http://www.trattoriatritone.com

    Wonderful restaurant in Rome, right around the corner from the Trevi Fountain. Rustic old style with a menu to match and the food is fantastic!! Tritone's is actually built over ruins, which they've preserved intact. The service is great and the waiters make sure that you are treated like a queen. Ladies, this is a very good place to dine if traveling alone. I was even treated to a very special dinner on my last night in Rome. Ask for Zeno, he's the best!!

  • 4. Stanley Hotel
    Stanley Hotel, Athens, Attica

    Very nice hotel with a great view from their rooftop restaurant. From the moment I checked in until I checked out I was treated very personably and there were staff who went out of their way to make sure that I got whatever assistance I needed. I would definitely stay again.
