Our last night in Rome, we discovered a true city gem—Fraschetteria Brunetti. Originally, we had planned to eat at a small restaurant down the road from our hotel, but plans changed when we realized that it had actually gone out of business, and was not just "closed" on Sundays.

However, had our plans not changed, we would never have discovered Fraschetteria Brunetti, a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant in the heart of Rome.  Our wine was served in plastic cups, the menus were written on pieces of scrap paper, and the walls were covered in love notes from former patrons. Everything little detail of the restaurant added to its quirky charm, and our visit was definitely the highlight of my time in Rome. (sorry historical monuments!)

After being served deliciously cheesy lasagna, the whole restaurant (which only consisted of about 10 tables) started clapping and singing along to a long soundtrack of tradition Italian songs. We cheered, we drank, we ate, and it was by far my favorite meal in all of Italy.
The next time I'm in Rome...I'm making a bee-line for this wonderful little restaurant :)

    The cobble stone streets and the hanging street lights are bring back lots of great memories from my trip to Rome a few months ago. Enjoy!!!
