Exploring and Eating

I’ve been extremely lucky to explore some great places since my transplant and thought some immune suppression friendly guidance for where we visit might be helpful for others

No huge reviews or write ups (I’ll leave that for the travel writers) but my sentence views on a number of category’s

… & obviously please follow your own inclination and reconnections, these are places I felt safe and happy eating and was able to pick stuff off the menu easily but places can change so please use your common sense!

The best of:


🍦Ice cream – we had a fair amount but I think my favourite was at Frigo Gelato

🍕Pizza – Li Rioni a Santiquattro. Simple thin and crispy and considering the restaurant was pretty full on a Sunday night obviously with a great local reputation too

🍽Nice ‘lets get dressed up’ dinner – a real treat ourselves night at Antica Pesa

🔎 Great food for people/chef watching – right up front in Romeo Chef and Baker… you can see everything going on in the kitchen and follow delicious pasta right to your table

🍴Place to get a super cheap lunch – Ristorante Carlo Menta… we had to check if the €3 was for a full pizza – it was. Jugs of wine, homemade pasta and quick service, ideal for refuelling at lunch

🍸Cocktails – Bar del Cinque. Small and very Italian. Not sure it was officially a cocktail bar but they nailed expresso martinis!

🛒 Food Market – Mercato Testaccio. Open for lunches although was definitely a little quite on a Monday. A whole load of delicious take away options as well as stools packed with delicious fresh products to drool over
