We will be there in August.

Good call regarding Auberge for lunch. Done.

I am still intrigued by Market as it has such consistently high reviews.

Bouchon is good. Went there last trip so won't need to go back.

I will look into Etoile as well. Thank you for that recommendation and your time!

Cooking class in Rome

My husband and I wanted to take a cooking class in Rome. We are trying to decide between Daniela del Balazo and Maureen Fant.

We have a 1 year old who will be with a nanny so we can't be gone multiple days and we would prefer to be with an Italian which is why we are leaning towards Danielas course.

Are there any other courses in Rome we should consider? Anyone taken both?

Look forward to hearing from you.

how do I find a specific restaurant that has been reviewed on the Italy board?

Several people have said "look for those restaurants on the board they have been frequently reviewed"... I can't seem to find an easy way to do that as the search option always comes up blank.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

10 days in Rome... where should we eat?

Elizabeth,

I took off the restaurants you recommended and added the II gelato, Pizzarium and Sforno, I was hesitant on Pizzarium due to the mixed reviews, but I definitely trust your opinion! ;) Crazy that I didn't have any pizza on the list since its hands down my favorite food on the planet!! Sforno looks like a perfect stop for me. Would you lunch here? From what I can see it looks like a place to grab and go.

My husband and I are traveling to rome in May for10 days. We've traveled extensively throughout Italy, but want to settle into Rome for awhile. We are foodies and enjoy local and organic cuisine. We've had the privilege of dining at amazing restaurants around the world and need your help finding some of the best Italian food in Roma.

Thanks in advance!!
