Restaurant Recommendations from Elle Magazine
A few months ago, Elle Magazine interviewed longtime Rome resident Erin Bazos about her insider favorites in Rome. Unfortunately the article is not on-line, but The Modern Traveler is happy to pass on her restaurant recommendations. On the Via della Pace is Chiostro del Bramante, a combination art gallery/bookstore/caffetteria which serves sandwiches, salads, wine and coffee surrounded by art on loan from museums. The cafe is attached to a cloister (pictured) designed by the brilliant architect Donato Bramante in 1504. On the lighter side, head to Zaza at Piazza Sant'Eustachio 49 for pizza with exceptional dough.
