Eating In Rome – A Personal Experience

Do not expect to do this cheaply if you want to sit down and enjoy your meal. When eating in Rome and many other places in Italy, a ‘bread’ charge is levied – the bread you get given after you have placed an order will cost you at least €2. And in some places this is charged per head. Unless you plan on eating a second lot of bread, do not order it!

Eating In Rome

When eating in Rome, Dave and I shared two starters. We had a cured meat platter and a dish of buffalo mozzarella slices served with hot tomato pasta sauce. The latter was not too bad, and something I would try at home. For the main course Dave had taglioni with tomato pasta sauce and I had ravioli with ricotta and spinach served with a creamed rocket sauce. We shared a bottle of Syrah and the bill came to €50. This is the second most expensive meal we had in Italy. The food was fantastic, the restaurant worth going back to and the staff very efficient.

EDIT:

Since writing this blog post we have been back to Rome and enjoyed a great meal in Trastevere. I can recommend eating off the beaten track. Look for places that do not offer a tourist menu!
