  • Food Lover’s Odyssey

    A very good list, almost all I follow regularly, and I will check out the 2 that are new to me. As Rome is such a great food city and being a Rome food lover, I must say there should be three more added to the list:  Parla Food, Tavole Romane and Puntarella Rossa.  For those looking for great eats in Rome, these blogs dish out what, where & when to eat the best food. Parla Food is in English. Tavole Romane translates some of their posts into English, and has an easy translator at the bottom of each post. Puntarella Rossa is in Italian, but you can translate on your own; they provide in depth reviews of restaurants and many best of lists for the eternal city.
