Pizzarium Bonci

So even if we reached here at 2:30 or so, that was fine.  Having to walk thirty-ish minutes from the St. Peter’s Basilica was fine.  We had to eat this pizza. It was more like a well risen focaccia bread, with a variety of toppings.  From ...

Taverna Trilussa

In hindsight, I would’ve gone to one of the other bookmarked places than this one that I found on app. This was after coming to the Trastevere hood only to eat. Well the area was very charming and it was fun wandering ...

Vineria S. Marta

Italy being laid back, most restaurants open for dinners after 7 or 7:30 PM.  There are some that are open all day, but come now, would you want to dine there? :p I have this thought in my head always – if it’s that easily available, it ...

Nessun Dorma

I’d looked this place up before going.  And while sitting there wasn’t particularly necessary to get great views, we stopped anyway as we were hungry. The place is more of a drink place, not particularly an eat place.  Especially not ...

Pasticceria Confetteria Cova

This was the first eat stop in Italy. We’d had a hearty breakfast on the flight and weren’t particularly starving after we got off.  Add to the shuttle time to the city center, walk to where we were staying, checking-in there, ...

La Taberna

The second lunch stop and the third meal stop for the day. Just steps away from our first lunch stop that day, this place was busier than the first. And it looked more inviting too. So allowing baby K to be a baby, run and play, we preferred to just ...

Satori Cafe

This inviting vegetarian place in Malmö, Sweden was one of the more memorable meals I had during my Scandinavian visit earlier this May. I usually don’t plan to spend a lot of time on lunches if I’m travelling – breakfast and ...

This one disappointed me in that stood up on the reviews.  So when I entered, the place looked all good and fancy (remember, New York City is my yardstick). But when the food arrived, it all went for a toss.  The pizza was still OK, but the ...
