  • Ambrosia Greek Eatery Review – Bartlett IL

    Ambrosia Greek Eatery Review A counter-serve eatery with the traditional blue/white decor, Ambrosia isn’t really “fast food” but rather falls into the category of casual food quickly.

    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.
