Antica Taverna, Roma, August 27, 2016

We have completed our fourth week without pizza, are down a few pounds, and generally feeling like we are eating healthier. My jeans fit better and I had to throw out a pair of hiking pants that threatened to fall down. Despite the heat, we had a remarkable 95,000 steps on the pedometer for the […]

La Buca di Ripetta, Roma, August 19, 2016

La Buca means hole, and can even refer to a subterranean trattoria, but La Buca di Ripetta (literally “the hole in Ripetta Street) is a far cry from a “hole.” We average dining here about once-a-year. We should come here more often. It is very close to the lively scene at Piazza del Popolo, but down […]

Siciliainbocca, Roma, August 13, 2016

Pasta, pizza, potatoes, bread, and rice are still off the menu for us, so OWP continues to bring you other great Roman restaurants for your vicarious pleasure. This week, we ventured across the Tevere to Siciliainbocca, which means “Sicily in the mouth.” Break it down: Sicilia in Bocca. We loved the food on our trip to Sicilia […]

La Fraschetta del Pesce, Roma, August 6, 2016

Our Weekly Pizza is going lo-carb. For four weeks we consumed amazing pasta, strudel, and the wonderful bread of the Alto Adige. We were hiking to work it off, but now that we are back in the flatlands of Roma, something had to change for a few weeks. Protein and vegetables are on the menu, […]

Taverna Rossini, Roma, July 29, 2016

Ahhh, Rossini, you are good to come home to! I have not written about Taverna Rossini in over a year. I think we had come to take it for granted as it is close to home and the only secret to getting a table is to call 2 or 3 hours before you want to dine. […]

Pizzeria Giacomelli, Rome, May 13, 2016

I want to like Pizzeria Giacomelli more than I do. It is in a nice little neighborhood, seldom seen by tourists, with a classic Roman ambience (meaning low-key, fairly plain, a little disorganized). The prices are great, the waiters just attentive enough, and the food comes out so fast you barely have time to down your sfizi. […]

Ai Marmi, Roma, April 8, 2016

So far behind on this blog! I apologize to both of my readers, but I’d swear I had documented this pizzeria because we had so much fun eating there! Ai Marmi pops up on best-pizza-in-Roma lists from time to time. Ric and I were going to go to Ai Marmi once a couple of years […]
