It makes me sad when I see hordes of tourists crowded into restaurants that I feel were created especially for them. Tables crowded outside under scaffolding with tattered checkered tableclothes and a greeter who calls out to you when you walk by. I know all about it because they see Anglo-Saxon me walking by and always say “Hello, would you like to sit.” Note to all….good places never have someone outside doing that because they don’t need to! Anyway, I took this photo on a narrow street connecting the Pantheon and Piazza della Pietra in honor of this phenomenon. If you are looking for good, quality places to eat, I recommend turning to some of the good food blogs about Rome, such as the one written by my friend Katie Parla.
