    This sounds amazingly delicious!!! Except…we will be attending midnight mass at St. Peter’s (which actually starts at 10pm) and been told we need to be in line by 7pm to secure a seat. So…we were thinking of doing a lunch instead for Christmas Eve.

    Katie–do you know what time they are opening for dinner? Or if they are doing anything special for lunch? Their web site doesn’t seem to have any info about this. Thanks!

      Thanks, Jessica for getting back to Tom before I could! Tom, the buffet is amazing. Lots of involtini (the various rolls in the post’s photo) and great dishes prepared by Mamma Bleve.

    Just made a reservation for lunch at Casa Bleve using my very limited Italian and the google translation tool! I can’t wait to get to Rome! Thanks again Jessica and Katie!

    Katie: We just got back from the buffet lunch at Casa Bleve on Chritmas Eve and let me say…it was amazing!!! Grazie, grazie, grazie!!! The involtini, the mozzarella, the wines and everything else were molto speciale. My partner and two nieces and I cannot stop raving about it. I only regret that we cannot have dinner there tonight as we are going to midnight mass a St. Peter’s.

    We extend warm wishes and peace to you and yours. Buon natale, auguri!!!
