I live in Umbria and use the guide as a quick check when I am in a different city/town from those I am used to visiting. of course, I have my own favorites, but Elizabeth has uncovered some interesting gems like La Cuccola which we recently visited and enjoyed very much. That is where this comes in especially handy.
I paid for the Rome app and did not receive it. I received notice from Apple Pay that it was paid but cannot use the app.
I had used Eat Rome several years ago when it was a stand-alone app and it worked reasonably well and gave great recommendations. Unfortunately, within the Eat Italy app things never worked! I had to re-purchase Rome (annoying but somewhat minor) and every time I tried to use the location section, in either the list or map view, it would only give me Florence! Even though I was in the Explore Rome section of the app. This happened over and over again and I could never get to the Rome map. I also tried downloading the Rome section so that I could use it offline and it wouldn’t download, despite quitting the app and multiple attempts. Finally just switched to reviews on google and had a great experience. It is too bad since past recommendations had been good.
This is perhaps the worst app I have ever purchased. I paid for both the Rome and Venice guides. Neither has ever worked properly. Each city results in a blank page. I have tried reloading the app, restoring the purchases. Occasionally one city page description will appear but the places are always listed as “0”. And of course, there is no app support. Save your money and peruse the blogger’s website instead.
The app is a bit buggy, but the recommendations are spot on and worth the bit of extra time it takes to navigate the app. I used her Venice map—so worth the minimal cost! I ate at a lot of places I wouldn’t have otherwise. It’s a wonderful way to experience Italy for foodies!
Simply put, the app won’t remember which cities were purchased and there is no support whatsoever. I appreciate Elizabeth’s recommendations but this app simply doesn’t work.
This is one of the worst apps I have purchased. It doesn’t do anything other than give you a list you can get anywhere for free.
I read everything I can about Italy and food and am so glad to have the app where all Elizabeth’s experience is condensed in an app format to take with me. On a visit 7 years ago, I had clippings and ripped pages from books to consult but her updated app is so accessible and personal. Great companion to her new book which I have also downloaded to my iPad.
I downloaded this app before the update for my upcoming trip to Italy. Purchased 3 of the guides and seemed to work fine. Since the update the app is very slow to load and I can’t seem to download the guides for offline viewing. Great potential for an awesome guide but needs to probably be updated again
Easy to use. It will take you to wonderful places the other guides miss.
