Bottega Trevi - Tasty Italy!
Updated: Aug 24
On my way to Sergio Di Cori's leather shop, I ran across what is now my favorite deli/pizzeria/ wine shop. Yes, I know most places that do it all typically don't do it well, but this place is different.
In the beginning, I was just curious and really taken in by the wall of olive and truffle oils, jams, pates (accent mark) (dried tomato, asparagus, green olive and many more choices), in addition to the hams hanging from the ceiling and the array of fresh olives. But after being offered cheese, salami and wine samples (which all turned out to b rather good), I decided this would be perfect place for lunch.
Everything looked so fresh tasty. I wound up ordering a couple of slices of pizza topped with cured ham, mushrooms and cheese. I also decided to purchase a small selection of olives and mushrooms. Since it was blazing hot outside (Rome in July), I thought it best to forgo the wine and have a cool Limonata. Excellent Lunch! Not super cheap at 12 euros (find the euro symbol), but affordable. Without the olive/ mushroom sampler, I would have only spent 8 euros, which is pretty good for a filling lunch of such quality food.
Upon leaving Bottega Trevi, I saw a sign directing people to the famous Trevi Fountain which was literally around the corner, thus the name "Bottega Trevi" - duh! See, I knew I'd run into something iconic while out walking!
