Lol indeed! The guy eating peasant food as a badge of honour was the same one mocking me for flying ryanair.
Offal is what all good working class socialists should eat. We know our place.

This was lunch in the Trastevere sunshine (con aperol!)

Camera angle makes it look smaller than it was :lolol: it was full of squid, prawns, mussels and clams yum yum

Anyone out and about near Termini tonight.

Looking for a simple bite to eat, couple of beers and the Real Madrid game.

Just had the best day & evening.

First time in Rome, always wanted to come here. We just walked around everywhere all day. Built up a bit of an appetite.

Wanted to do at least one good Roman meal while we were here. Read that means multiple courses but portions are small and served separately - antipasti (starters), primo (e.g. pasta), secondo (meat/fish), contorni (veg), dolce (sweet). All good so far.

Planned restaurant was fully booked but they suggested their sister Osteria.

NO-ONE TOLD US OSTERIAS DO BIGGER PORTIONS :lolol: :lolol: :lolol:

We were joke du jour with all 3 wait staff who were brilliant. One came to us in between every course with the dessert menu and we said "we're not finished yet" every time. By the end they were all trying to get us to have a dessert, but we literally couldn't manage another bite. Absolutely great place, great food, great staff, a great laugh and a great night.

Between the 2 of us over about 3 hours we had decent (and rich!) portions of porchetta di ariccia, prosciutto e buffalo moz, tonnarelli alla gricia, lasagne, trippa alla romana, polpette di bollito alla romana al sugo, carciofi, breads, water, peronis, wine, and a good 3 fingers of amore nazionale. Total bill just €118 (£50 each).

Thank God it was a 2 minute walk (waddle) to our hotel. Dinner tomorrow is an espresso and 2 cantucci!
Outstanding,...

White or blue or red and yellow may the best team win. Plenty of free drinks at the W hotel tonight. They are football obsessed.
