Trying to find a needle in a haystack....particular resto in Rome

green241 Jan 22, 2009 07:49 PM

I'm trying to find a place I've been to in Rome-I've been there twice and had lovely experiences, but it was a few years ago-if I were there on foot I'm sure I could find it again, but I'm trying to find the name so I can recommend it to a friend (and I'd like to go there again too-its kind of driving me nuts to not be able to find the place)

So, I'm pretty sure it was close to Vittorio Emanuele II-
The defining characteristics were as follows-it has a cheese room (I think its run by a French/Italian team or couple)
It features tapas portions of alot of things including (when I was there) a set of four tapas portion desserts.
There is a small terrace-the decor as I remember it was certainly more modern than traditional, but not overly sleek.
It was not particularly expensive-maybe 50 or 60 euros for dinner tops.
It would have been perpendicular to Via Vittorio Emanuele and on the southern side of the street.

Any ideas??

    Not sure about the restaurant but those bar snacks or tapas portions you mentioned are called cicchetti (sp?) in Italy.

      Try google street view and go through the streets in the area you think the place is. Maybe that helps.

        Could be Casa Bleve?
