Fatamorgana: Gelato in Monti

I’ve heard a lot about Gelateria Fatamorgana, but it’s in Prati.  Which may be the other side of Rome, but sometimes on lazy Saturdays, it feels like the other side of the world. But there is now a location in Monti and that is decidedly on my side of Rome. After a warm thunderstorm on […]

Rome Gelato Tour: Il Gelato di Claudio Torcè

After eating at both San Crispino and Grom within 15 minutes, we had officially had a lot of gelato. BUT on E’s Great Gelato Tour you can always find room for more. San Crispino and Grom are only about a 2 minutes walk apart.  That is a very little time to eat a lot of […]

Rome Gelato Tour: Grom

Stop two on E’s great gelato tour: Grom. Grom feels American because it feels cookie-cutter.  Grom is not a Roman institution, it is a chain and didn’t open its first location in the eternal city until earlier this year. Grom rotates its flavors monthly, which is less often than most of the smaller shops.  Here […]

Eat, Pray, Love’s Gelato at San Crispino in Rome

San Crispino is a must stop when it comes to sampling the best gelato in Rome, which is why one of my first ever blog posts after moving to here was a rave review of their lemon gelato. Those on an Eat, Pray, Love quest always find themselves at San Crispino.  Elizabeth Gilbert immortalized the gelateria […]

Pizzeria Tonda: Best Pizza in Rome?

This past week marked a strange milestone for me. I moved to Rome to go to graduate school, and on Friday I took my last exam.  It’s very weird to know that it’s over. Oh. Except for that little dissertation thing I have to write in the next few months. Even though we were in […]

Pizzarium: The Best Pizza in Rome?

Old pizzarium before remodel

When my friend came to spend the holidays with me in Italy, we went on an adventure to eat the best pizza in Naples.  Slow train journey to Naples and back in one day for Da Michele? Worth it. After our Neapolitan experience, we were on a mission to find the best pizza in Rome. […]

Macaroni and Cheese in Rome

Cacio e pepe is a Roman dish, it is also the best “macaroni and cheese” that you will ever eat. This is the dish that reminds me of home, even though making comparisons to Kraft dinners is probably sacrilege. Cacio is a Roman cheese, and pepe is simply black pepper. Throw that on top of […]

San Crispino Lemon Gelato

When I finally decided to make the move to Italy a reality, my philosophy was: “When life hands you lemons, move to Rome and make lemon gelato.” I moved to Rome, and I found my lemon gelato- it was at San Crispino all along: Now listen to me very closely: if you are in Rome, […]
