Eat, walk, photograph, drink, repeat. Though not necessarily in that order. But that’s basically my routine in Rome. The question, though, is where to eat. There are so many wonderful choices in Rome that sometimes I wish I had an extra stomach to accompany my hungry eyes.
As a long time fan of TripAdvisor, I decided perhaps just once I’d put my fate in its community’s collective hands and try out the top ranked restaurant at this website. And on the day I logged on to TripAdvisor, Ristorante Eleonora D’Arborea was numero uno out of some 3900 listed restaurants. I read through the first five pages of reviews and made an online reservation. I knew I should order its celebrated hot/cold appetizer specialty and lobster pasta. I just didn’t take any of the comments seriously that it was truly possible to die from gluttony! There were 5 or 6 dishes for that seafood hot/cold appetizer:

then chocolate souffle:
It’s official. I need a stomach staple. Better yet, find me a blindfold as I walk through the streets of Rome…
