The Brits - of whom I am one!!! - have two traditional sandwiches, hitherto unmentioned:

The Bacon Butty (Butty means sandwich made with buttered bread) and

The Sausage Sandwich

both served hot, bread either buttered (for the posh) or with the bacon/sausage fat soaked into one side of the bread that will be the inside of the sandwich. These are to be revered as the true working man's sandwich, to satisfy the souls of what these men are made of, men of oak who are the very core of what it is to be British! We have to pay tribute to them!

Toasted ham and cheese is a big favourite, salami and salad, mozzarella and tomato, Parma ham and salad, cheese and salad porchetta (scrumptious roast suckling pig flavoured with rosemary and garlic, hot straight from the spit, tuna and salad. These are served in Italian flatbread as sandwiches, crusty rolls and piadina, a type of bread similar to Mexican bread for wraps. Sandwiches are ever increasing in popularity and are the only kind of street food you're likely to get here, unless it's things like donuts, cannoli and other types of street food sold at the many travelling fairs that go around Italy during the great winter festivals, especially Carnevale.

Hope that's informative enough!

Panini for lunch was one of my favorite things about Italy

GG, that panino looks delicious! Tuna? Chicken? I could see making something like that in this very hot weather...

There is a local Cleveland sandwich shop chain that started as one small storefront in 1986 in the Cleveland Flats, back when it was mostly factories and rough-and-tumble bars. Now both "Paninis Bar & Grill" (forgive their use of that "s" at the end) and The Flats have gone upscale and expanded. Still a good place to go for a great sandwich.

We had several "autostrada paninis" when we were driving around northern Italy. Those places were really quite good - a definite cut or two above Americal fast food.

You are absolutely right! IMO, they are a cut above some of the places we ate at on our bus tour. Did you get to Stresa? It was one of the places we chose to be on our own for dinner. Found a small place and the food was just incredible!

Our best eating experiences were in Tuscany (big surprise ). Since we were driving on our own, we had the luxury of exploring, and we found a couple of great places, one in old Florence called Cafe Bigalo where we ate a couple of times, but our best find was Osteria Bottega di Lornano in the small village of Lornano, about 4 miles outside of Siena (and about the same distance from the agritourismo where we were staying). Not only great food but a great overall experience with the friendliest people. The second time we ate there, we were family. We were the only tourists that we saw there - all the rest of the people seemed to be local or semi local - even the waiters spoke only a little more English than we did Italian, which is almost none. I'd have stayed in Tuscany a couple more days just to eat there at least one more time if we hadn't already had reservations up the west coast in Porto Venera.
