Food suggestions in Italy ?

I'm going to these cities in Italy. Anyone know of good places to eat ? That are not too expensive?? This is where I'm going Rome, Siena, Montecatini, Venice.

Answer on Food suggestions in Italy ?

Food suggestion: eat local. Only people of the place at the moment can give you advice.
For my part I just can give some suggestion.
ASK somebody, the Hotel concierge, a newsstand agent or the barman in a coffee bar (that has not a restaurant) and when you go to the place say that they have been suggested by local people. It can make feel the restaurant owner a little responsibility to a fellow countryman.
The trouble for tourist (especially foreigners) is that they can be overcharged, 30-50% if they are Italians more if Japanese or Americans.
