My fiance and I have made the decision that we are going to have our wedding in Rome in the summer of 2014 and I am looking for some advice on a good place to host our reception. The plan right now is to have the ceremony around 6:30 to 7:30 PM with a reception to follow at around 8:00 PM. We are looking for a place that fits the following criteria.
* Must have private dining accommodations available for up to 16 guests;
* Must have a staff that can speak English as there will be some guests who cannot speak Italian
* I want people to eat and drink to their hearts content so I am not looking for a place that is extremely fancy and serves what I call tasting portions
* Budget is $3,500
I would like it to be as close to the Colosseum and the Forum as possible.
