The Rome Digest


I am super excited to introduce The Rome Digest, a collaborative blog I have been working on with my friends and colleagues Irene de Vette, Sarah May Grunwald, Hande Leimer and Gina Tringali. After months of work and many sleepless nights, the TRD has been released into the wild for your dining, drinking, shopping and leaning enjoyment.

This curated site has 100 reviews of our favorite places to eat, drink and shop for food in Rome and we will be adding many more in the coming weeks and months. Our aim is to promote good food and drink culture in a time it is in steady decline. The small businesses in Rome who are doing good work with great ingredients need our support and attention.

Though we give credit where credit is due, we are at the service of the reader and do not accept sponsored posts or accept free or discounted services in exchange for positive reviews. We write honest, candid reviews of venues so visitors and locals can spend their time and money wisely, while having a great experience.

I will still be posting here, of course, and will continue to cover Rome quite a bit, but am eager to write more about some other cities I love like Istanbul, London and New York. But most of all, I look forward to researching new venues with the four talented TRD co-founders and, in all likelihood, some Parla Food readers as well!
