Subject: Re: Request for Rome restaurant near Borghese Gallery
Hi Penny,

We stay at the Hotel Delle Muse in the Parioli district, walking

distance from the Borghese Gallery. On our recent visit, we tried some of the restaurants in the neighborhood, which we can recommend.

La Scala Viale Parioli 79/d Phone 06-8084463 Closed Wednesdays Very nice atmosphere and service. Excellent menu choices and preparation. Reasonably priced for the style and quality.

La Maremma Viale Parioli 93/c, Rome, Italy Phone: 06-8086002 Parioli Pizza Closed Mon. and Aug. No lunch. Excellent pizza - Napoli style!

Al Ceppo Via Panama 2, Rome, Italy Phone: 06-8419696 Parioli Italian Closed Mon. and 2 wks in Aug. Classic, elegant dining rooms with a casual bent. Wonderful food and service. Reasonably priced for the superb dining experience.

Since it's your first night in Rome, a cab from the gallery to the restaurant might be worth the few euros. Most restaurants don't open until 7:30 at the earliest. Let's hope you can stay awake during the meal to enjoy the good food! Have a great trip!

Cheers! Linda
