... it well enough, and Steph even tried (and liked!) the eggplant which surprised her (and disappointed me a little...lol I wanted to eat it all). After the appetizers we got our pasta which was carbonara. It was unreal, not anything like you would have tasted outside of Rome. We both loved it. Then it was the meat dish, and we got veal and steak, and I actually ate a little veal. I tried not to think about it :( on top of all of that, ...
