Pizzeria La Fiorfiore, Via della Croce 17, 00187 Rome, Italy

rome-outsideMy husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat lunch near the Spanish Steps in Rome. There were lots of little pizzeria and trattoria but many of them had prices we were not willing to pay, just for lunch. When we turned down Via della Croce there were two restaurants directly opposite one another wih menus and prices much the same. We chose the one on the left and ended up in Pizzeria La Fiorfiore.rome-pasta

It was very crowded and the lavatories left a lot to be desired. Indeed, we decided against visiting the rest rooms. However, the cooking area was open and was clean. The waiters worked fast to ensure all the customers were served timeously.rome-chicken

We were quite hungry so we had a starter we shared mozzerella balls. They were very tasty but extremely hot which made me think they might have been microwaved. Still, we enjoyed them. For our main course, I chose pasta. I had the tagliatelle with mushroom sauce. I had had the same dish at Jamie’s Italian in Threadneedle Street, London. It is reviewed here, https://hotelandrestaurantreviews.com/2016/01/04/jamies-italian-ground-floor-38-threadneedle-st-london-ec2r-8ay/ . I  wish no disrespect to the celebrity chef, but I enjoyed my meal at Pizzeria La Fiorfiore better. My husband chose the roast chicken and thoroughly enjoyed it. The portion size was generous and that suited him very well!rome-inside

The lunch we had at Pizzeria La Fiorfiore was tasty and not too expensive, bearing it is near the Spanish Steps. I would visit this little restaurant again.
