Amazing Resturants in Rome

Pasqualino al Colosseo: Close to the Colosseum 

Via SS Quattro. 66 | 0018400184 Rome, Italy

We ate lunch here the day we visited the Colosseum and Roman Forum, mostly because it was close and recommended to us. We got a course of pasta, veal and salad, and dessert. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the veal was tender and flavorful. And you can never go wrong with tiramisu!
