When in Rome, enjoy Caffe Martini

One of the biggest and greatest parts of traveling is enjoying authentic cuisine.

During my trip to Rome, it was an absolute must that I indulged in a local Italian meal. So, after a day of seeing the Vatican, good looking locals, and live pictures out of a social studies book, I happened upon Caffe Martini on my way back to the hotel.

I was delighted to finally sit down after a day of walking in the bitter cold. This was the view that I had from my table.
I ordered a cup of coffee to warm up. The winds were so brisk and my limps were frozen. The coffee was strong and hit the spot. While I sipped on my brew, a young woman chatted me up as she drank her hot chocolate. Her proclamation was she just knew I was American. She was there to warm up as well. She is an English teacher in lower Switzerland and would take the train into the city on the weekends; nice gal from Ohio.
Thereafter, I desired a quick bite and the waiter suggested the meat/cheese platter. (pictured above).
I didn’t expect such a gigantic portion but… such is life.
While I nibbled on the appetizer, the waiter brought an assortment of breads. It soon turned into a mini buffet.
The waiter was very attentive and interested in my visit to his city.
The main dish arrived and I was completely overwhelmed. How could I partake in all of this delight and still manage to walk 6 blocks back to my hotel.
I did, I made it, and lived to tell the story.
