Giada's Roman Favorites
Giada de Laurentiis has her own website and social network: giadadelaurentiis.com. Among the event calendar, blogs and occasional recipes are Giada's worldwide favorite restaurants and hotels. Naturally, the Modern Traveler is most interested in her Roman favorites. Three hotels that Giada recommends are the Hotel de Russie, Grand Hotel de la Minerve (near the Pantheon) and the Boscolo Hotel Exedra (Piazza della Reppublica). Her restaurant choices are even more interesting. For cafe life and excellent pastries, she recommends Caffe Greco on the Via Condotti. Ciampini is her choice for gelato and chocolate croissants, and Gusto makes her list for pizza and antipasti. Giada is never wrong when it comes to food, so Buon Appetito!
