Hi. I've been reading your blog for quite some time...don't think I've ever commented before. I love coming here.
I have been to Rome twice...in 2007 and then again last year. Mostly, we stayed in and around the Vatican (although this last time we took a trip to Assisi). There is one particular place that we've been to several times. It's called Dino & Tony's. Have you ever been there? I'm curious to know what you think of this place. Is it pretty typical for tourist food...or is it better than some? I ask because a couple of times a year, I find myself recommending this place to friends who will be traveling in the area. So far, I've only had one friend and her husband actually go there for a meal. They loved it and went a second night! If there is a place better, in that area, I'd like to keep it in mind for the next time I'm in Rome...hopefully sometime in the next two years! Thanks for your time!
