San Jose (California)
My wife and I will join 2 other couples in Rome for a few days. Any thoughts on a great casual local restaurant for our first night dinner?
I spent a summer studying abroad in Rome and recently went back for a long weekend with my boyfriend. I'd highly recommend checking out Katie Parla's Rome City Guide for restaurant recommendations! Its an amazing resource. Here are two of my favorites:
Trattoria Monti - a small neighboorhood type restaurant with exceptional food and even better service.
Ristorante le Mani in Pasta very difficult to find – down a little street in Trastevere but the homemade pasta with grated white truffle made the journey worth it!
Feel free to read my Rome Trip Notes on my blog, BostonianBrit.
