Est! Est!! Est!!!, Rome, April 10, 2015

We first tried to go to Est! Est!! Est!!! in 2011 on Santo Stefano, December 26, the day after Christmas. It was closed, like many places on a holiday, and we ended up at what can best be called a Roman diner down the street, conveniently open, too brightly lighted, with tired waitresses and a […]

72 Ore, March 20, 2015

At last a new-to-us place in Roma that was worthy of the trip. Thanks to a fellow blogger, John Henderson of Dog-Eared Passport, we found 72 Ore.

Just off Piazza Alessandria, it’s not a place most visitors would stumble into. The dining room is quite large, but divided into rooms so it is not […]

Da Remo, November 14, 2014

Sometimes Rome seems very small. We can walk from our home to the historical center in an hour-and-a-quarter, which is something we do every Saturday just for the fun and exercise. At other times Rome feels ridiculously big, such as when we spend over an hour going each way on public transportation in order to […]
