Visiting Rome with Family

Awesome idea! I've read on a few sites that was a great book too!

Visiting Rome with Family

Thanks for all the feedback! Do most trattoria's accept credit cards or just Euro? Also do you think they'd be willing to serve pasta without any sauce? My oldest won't eat sauce of any form including ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc. I think it wasn't until he was 10 that we convinced him to have pizza with sauce on it. I think he'll like the Roman pasta dish that just has the pasta water, cheese and black pepper but if he ends up not liking it he'll want plain pasta. . . .

Visiting Rome with Family

Hello! I'm visiting Rome with my family which includes two boys ages 9 and 11. I've read tons of posts so I have some great ideas for eatting but I have two questions:

1.) Do most of the trattoria's/restaurants have menus in English?
2.) Do most trattoria's/restaurants have kids menus or portions available?
3.) If kids menus or portions aren't available do they allow you to order one plate and have the kids split it?

I have one adventurous eatter and one who isn't so I need to be able know how big of an international data plan I need to get to translate menus. And, I need to know how good my negotiating skills need to be to convince them to share one meal. . . . Thanks for any advice!
