Restaurant in Trastevere

Alle Fratte: This unassuming neighborhood restaurant located on Via Delle Fratte a few blocks east of Piazza St. Maria in trastevere, serves up fantastic pasta, bruschetta and grilled vegetables. It was recommended in Fodors, and it is clear from the international diners crowding the outdoor tables that the word is out to travelers, but we could hear alot of italian being spoken as well, so it is not a tourist only place. The decor is nothing to write home about, but the food was great, the service friendly and attentive, and the price very reasonable.

We ate the Pene Pomodoro and the Gnocci with a tomato sauce that was tinted toward orange with the addition of cheese. Both were great. The gnocci was the standout among them. We started with some amazing grilled vegetables and a wonderful Bruscetta Fagiole.

Restaurant in Trastevere

I just had a fantastic bruschetta and pizza at dar poeta. The best pizza i've had in rome so far (and the 3rd or 4th place i tried). Also had a liter of the house red wine which at 8 euro was a great value. The restaurant was jam packed and the servers seemed a bit frazzled, but I knew it wouldn't be a high dining experience. The pizza was great. The crust was crunchy and chewey, and the sauce and cheese was salty enough but not too salty. We had the Pizza Al Funghi and a Pizza Margherita.

Nice Dinner Recommendation: Portland OR - veg/fish friendly

Girlfriend and I are going to town on business friday, looking for a recommendation for a good moderately to expensive priced restaurant that serves locally harvested/sustainable/organic cuisine with veg and fish options (we don't eat meat or fowl). Also would appreciate a nice wine list with local offerings

We're coming from Seattle where we love: Tilth, Dhalia, Carmalita's, Stumbling Goat, La Spiga, Lark, monsoon.

It's totally last minute, so a place where we are likely to be able to get a table would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Looking for good Veg Friendly in Albuquerque NM (and Santa Fe)

I'm in Albuquerque for the next week and looking for good Veg Friendly suggestions for dinner. Probably will make a trip up to Santa Fe too, so let the recommendations fly!

Dietary restriction: no chicken, no red meat, no pork.

Ovo, Lacto, Pesce, Veg AOK!

Thanks

Recipes: sending and favoriting

When sending a recipe to a friend (if you are logged in) your email address should already be in the form.

Also, there should be a clear and easy way to add a recipe to my favorits, or a "recipe box" under "myChow".
