First day in Rome, first amazing pizza at L'Antica Salumeria, by the Pantheon. Pizza Amatriciana, e Quattro Formaggi
...and dinner at a local restaurant, where Romans eat. Delicious fish and potatoes al forno, with rosmarino, — at Ristorante Il Pettirosso.
Starting the day with cappuccino freddo and pasticceria di casa
— at Villa Borghese gardens.
Cold prosecco against a hot Roman street wall — at Fontana Di Trevi-Roma.
Spaghetti di Parma near Fontana di Trevi
— at Spaghetteria l'Archetto.
Panini and granita, — at Colosseo.
Crossing Tevere, Trastevere
And then...dinner! bruschetta con frutti di mare, bombolini with mussels and parmigiano, saltimbocca alla romana and Macedonia.
Music and Aperol Spritz as the night is young.
We received a Vermentino di Sardegna as a gift and here is the brunch around it: prosciutto (di Parma and Montagnana) melone, fresh figs from the market with pecorino picante and caciocavallo di capra, fresh black cherries and magnifico pesto romano and ciabattine.
More Roman essentials (a.k.a do not miss): Bellini, the peachy prosecco — at Taba Cafè • Campo dé Fiori.
Mozzarella di Bufala
— at Campo de' Fiori.
Capricciosa — at MERCATO hostaria.
and....drumms!!! Tiramisu, of course :)
After several attempts and of course many gelati :D I finally resisted long enough to take a pic of the delicious gelato artigianale di Roma. Lemon and mango.
