My boyfriend and I ate our first dinner in Rome at da Gasparone. We had just been to the Trevi Fountain and were walking back to our hotel when we got stopped to look at a plate of lasagne a customer at da Gasparone was eating. We decided to look at the big placard menu and the waitress (and the lasagne!) talked us into eating there. It's on a small side street called Via in Arcione that's teeming with pedestrians, so the people watching was entertaining (sit outside on the street, not inside, if you like people-watching). Even more entertaining was watching the waitress hustling people! We actually did not have the lasagne but had a great penne pasta with zucchini and gorganzola - YUMMY! The vegetable plate we ordered was disappointing (a sad sampler of cooked vegetables/potato/frittata). After hustling us into our chairs, though, the service was less than adequate. I would rate the food lower than the typical side-street restaurants, which tend to be better than the main drag touristy restaurants.
