There are [...] The post Pantera Pizza Garbatella appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more

Eating in the center of Rome can be a bit difficult if you fail to plan ahead. Most of the very well-known restaurants like Roscioli or Armando al Pantheon are rather cozy and their limited tables are booked far in advance. Other places that take walk-ins (or worse, have someone outside trying to actively entice [...] The post L’Antica Birreria Peroni: Eating near the Trevi Fountain appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more
