Delicious...the food is delicious! A restaurant on a sidewalk filled with tourists serves delicious pizza - which I fell in love with - as well as a selection of pasta specialities. It's about the simplicity of food, the thin pizza with a light spread of tomato sauce and thinly sliced spicy salami. A basket of bread to start the experience served with two packs of crunchy grissini... but a very slow service like all tourist restaurants around this beautiful city.


Walking around the old souks between the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo stop for a quick bite. If you have a car you can't park anywhere close to the old town however, so you'll have to drive behind Piazza Augusto Imperatore.

Sit on the wide terrace facing the BNL bank, with a bottle of sparkling water, a pizza and plate of pasta to enjoy the moment.

Back to the pizza: made of very thin dough, with a juicy heart, a crust that's not soaked and watery, a very thin crunchy border, a light acidity, a light spiciness and thinly sliced salami your teeth can bite through easily.


Spaghetti carbonara: thick spaghetti with bacon mixed in the real carbonara sauce. No cream added, egg that is not over-pronounced, pasta cooked al dente, pepper and salt. The noodles - "Caccio et Peppe" Tornarelle - are as good as they should be.


I enjoyed lunch - a very slow paced lunch - and continued on my walk around the old city.
