Sunday Night in Rome

Sunday Evening, with rested feet, and new found energy, we set out for dinner at La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali. Grazie, Colleen K, for the recommendation. We had a fabulous meal! We began by sharing a special pasta of the evening: Large tube pasta with caramelized onions, broccoli and fresh sausage. It was amazing! Then I had a delicious saltimbocca, and Brad had roasted lamb with wine sauce and potatoes. The chef and waiter were charming. Dinner with a bottle of wine: 57 Euro.

After dinner, we had coffee and grappa at the charming rooftop terrace of the Hotel Forum. It was a gorgeous evening with a lovely view.

We ended up back at Campo Dei Fiori around midnight, and decided to stop at the Mozzarella Bar for a nightcap. I began my day at this deserted campo at 6:30 AM:

Peaceful, serene, quiet, sleepy...

At midnight, it is a boisterous, pulsating, vibrant, FABULOUS scene!

Palma, I am just now catching up with your blog. I am sooo glad you enjoyed your meal at La Taverna. Such wonderful food and friendly service. I'll never consider a trip to Rome complete without eating there on future trips.
Sounds like a wonderful start to your trip. Love traveling with you guys through your blog!
