The Trevi Fountain is one of the main things to see in Rome.
In between the little streets of Rome stands the famous Trevi Fountain. Tourists, and even locals, gather daily to throw spare change into the fountain, making a wish.
As with all tourist areas, there are 100’s of restaurants, charging higher prices than anywhere else. Being smart travellers, we walked a couple of streets down from the fountain and of course, found a few restaurants offering the same meals for way cheaper. We had a meal deal at Mannozzi restaurant for 13€.
Mannozzi’s Meal Deal
The deal consists of a pasta dish to start such as Carbonara, Bolognese, etc. It’s strange in Italy that they eat this dish as a starter, as they are not small portions and are really heavy. I would never normally choose to eat pasta before a main course. The pasta arrived and it was cooked beautifully. Al dente, and bursting with flavour.
The main course was a choice of Chicken, Veal or Pork with fried potatoes. The main course was a a let down in comparison to our starter. The meat was quite tough and the friend potatoes were very oily. We didn’t enjoy the mains.
For dessert, it was of course, Tiramisu or homemade icecream.
Once again, the tiramisu tasted amazing. The Italians are known for this speciality and do not disappoint.
We wouldn’t recommend eating at Mannozzi, as the quality of the main course was very poor. There are many restaurants in Rome serving a much better meal.
