The biggest part about our trip to Rome I was excited for was the food. I love Italian food; it’s my absolute go-to comfort, celebratory, happiness, sadness food. It’s the food that makes my soul the happiest. It’s the one culinary food that bought me and my husband together; our love for pasta.
It’s easy to find any restaurant in Rome and be guaranteed a great big bowl of pasta or a pizza full of mozzarella. But, are you going to have the best pizza and pasta? Is it going to completely change your pasta game or were you pretty much better off going for a Two for Tuesday at Dominos?
Do you see my dilemma? I had been dreaming of Rome for so, so long. It had been on my bucket list for years and I needed the food to live up to all the expectations I had created. On our first night, I had a very sub-par pizza which did not hit the spot at all. Blaming it on not finding out hotel very well and being hangry, I put it down to a pants restaurant and poor choices on my behalf. Luckily, the pints of Peroni I was knocking back made up for it.
So, in order to find the best food and try everything I possibly could in the Eternal City, it seemed the best thing to do would be to go on a food tour, and I’m 100% glad that we did.
