Just like Piccolo Buco by the Trevi Fountain, it’s a rare find to discover authentic and delicious Italian restaurants by the Colosseum without being lured by the enticing view of the amphitheatre from your dining table.

Here’s a perfect example of the adage, great things come in small packages. This is the entrance to InTown Luxury House in Rome, a guest house hotel which Roomie & I stayed at on our last night in Italy.

After getting settled at Roma Boutique Hotel, and after getting my luggage opened, I was famished for some late lunch.
