Since this was our last night in Rome, the four of us decided to commemorate it by having a glass of wine in the loft that overhung the couch in the living room. Giggling as we climbed the steep wooden ladder to the platform above, we lounged on the cloth-covered mattress and toasted our time in my favorite city on earth.
By this time the rain had stopped, so we tiptoed over puddles to a restaurant around the corner in Piazza Cesarini Sforza, the piazza where every morning we had enjoyed our cappuccini and cornetti.
Earlier that morning we had scrutinized the menus of two restaurants, Trattoria da Luigi and Antica Trattoria Polese, both located right there in Piazza Cesarini Sforza.
Ultimately deciding upon Antica Trattoria Polese, known for fine traditional Roman food, we spent our last night enjoying a fabulous meal sitting outside beneath the awnings, befitting our final day in the Eternal City.
