According to Travel and Leisure experts, here are those best places to eat like a local in Europe
1.Orlando di Castello, Vienna
What’s drawing creative types to this eye-catching, white-on-white café? Perfect poached eggs on dense walnut toast and beautifully served Viennese Melanges (espressos with milk)—some of the city’s best.
2. Gelateria Millennium, Rome
Located just outside the Vatican, this husband-and-wife operation is known for its funky range of flavors (such as mascarpone pear and persimmon).
3.Lauras Bakery, Copenhagen
In a land obsessed with morning pastries (Danish, anyone?), Lauras takes the cake. Expect rows of kanelsnegle (intensely spiced cinnamon rolls) and Pop-Tart-likehindbærsnitters, all in the culinary mecca that is Torvehallerne Market.
4. Spit & Roast, London
Two young chefs have turned a 2006 Ford Transit van into the roving rotisserie Spit & Roast, whose free-range Suffolk chickens are now a cult sensation.
5. Le Coq Rico, Paris
Heirloom chickens and game birds are the specialty at Le Coq Rico, in Paris’s boho Abbesses quarter.
6.Bar del Fico, Rome
At this modern restaurant in the Parione quarter, nattily dressed Romans hold court over salumi, mini-pizzas, and terrific cocktails.
7.Borkonyha Wine Kitchen, Budapest
A fashionable bistro dedicated to Hungary’s woefully underrated wines. Late nights draw well-heeled locals for sautéed duck liver and freshwater trout with dill.
8.Osteria Bancogiro, Venice
Request a Grand Canal–facing table and order gnocchi with scallops and porcini.
Skip breakfast—hell, skip lunch—and save every calorie for the decadently thick, not-too-sweet hot chocolate at this ornate 1903 teahouse, an erstwhile haunt of Coco Chanel.
10.Pancake Bakery, Amsterdam
Bacon-, cheese-, or apple-topped pannenkoeken(larger and thinner than American flapjacks) are the items to order at this intimate canal-side space.
11.Bar Velodromo, Barcelona
The sprawling Art Deco interior of this 1933 landmark is as inviting in the madrugada (late at night) as it is during the day. Why wait for breakfast to order huevos estrellados (eggs over fries)?
12.Il Pirata, Praiano, Italy
Antonio Sersale, owner of Positano’s Le Sirenuse hotel, swears by the sea-urchin linguine at this Amalfi Coast idyll, where a sun-drenched terrace is built into rocks above a glittering cave.
