Rome from December 14 - 19

Hello all,

My husband and I are heading to Rome for four glorious nights to celebrate our five-year anniversary.

This is our first real trip without our toddlers so we are beyond excited. We are looking for great restaurants, varying from casual to formal, expensive to reasonable. We would prefer to stay away from very touristy venues but realize that may be difficult.

Thanks so much for any feedback you may have.

I promise to provide detailed feedback upon my return.

All the best,

    1. Drink swanky cocktails at PierLuigi, if you love fish stay here for an elegant grownup meal.

      Spend an evening in the hip Monti neighborhood. Start with a glass of wine at Fafiuche or Vino al Vino and have dinner Taverna Fori Imperiale or Taverna Romana. For lunch try the fixed menu at L’Asino D’oro and the have coffee or a drink at Cafe 2Periodico.

      L’Asino D’Oro - Via del Boschetto, 73 

      Fafiuche - Via della Madonna dei Monti, 79

      Cafe 2Periodico - Via Leonina, 77

      Al Vino al Vino - Via dei Serpenti 19

      Start your day early with breakfast at the very pretty Coromandel

      Have fun!
