In March 2019, on our last day in Rome, we were roaming around looking for a place to eat dinner. At this point in our travels, we were sick of carbs (pasta / pizza) and were craving a juicy piece of steak. We eventually found Osteria Delle Coppelle and chose this restaurant for their menu and reviews - and the fact that they didn't have an eager waiter nudging us indoors like the other tourist traps made us feel more comfortable LOL.
Mick got his wish and ordered a massive tomahawk steak with roasted potatoes, garnished with rosemary. It was well seasoned with a nice charred flavour profile. The meat fell off the bone with minimal cutting. There was nothing extraordinary about the steak - just that it was delicious.
This was a simple roasted potato with oil and rosemary. The potatoes had a starchy texture and were good. You can never go wrong with a plate of potatoes.
I stayed on the safer side and ordered a spaghetti bolognese. Please refer to my fuck up for an explanation on why I played it safe. This was a soft pasta, with a sweet and savoury tomato sauce. It was good for such a simple, classic dish.
While we were having dinner, the Italian couple next to us made conversation. They were telling us how to eat our pasta, the order in which we should eat Italian cuisine and where to visit next. We kept telling them to visit the land of beaches hahaha. We ended our night with a shared bottle of wine and it was so wholesome, I wished we had more of these moments during our Europe trip. Alas, there's always next time.
Thank you for reading! Ciao Bella.
