Our favorite place to meet up with our relatives for lunch in Rome is by the Pantheon. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of the place but if you are standing by the front door of the Pantheon looking at the restaurants it’s the first one on the right with the red awning.

Lorenzo’s Pizzeria

The slice I had there is not your typical pizza. They add sausage to their marinara sauce. Although I like regular NY style pizza this was tasty. I always add crushed red pepper, black pepper, Garlic powder, and Oregano to the top.

On the Edge – I would not recommend this spot. The food was so so and the service was HORRIBLE!!! The waitresses are miserable there.
