  • Ristoro della Salute Review – Rome, Italy

    Ristoro della Salute Review  Everyone advises to steer clear of restaurants immediately outside of tourist attractions (they overcharge! they take advantage) but this eatery just outside the Colosseum seemed like just the perfect place for a little lunch after learning all about gladiators, lions, and such.
