4 Coins in a Fountain

We went to a spaghetteria for dinner last night, Spaghetti dell' Archetto.  What is a spaghetteria, you might ask?  Well it's a restaurant that specializes in spaghetti, offering 137 different sauces (Narisa counted!) - which was almost paralyzing in terms of choice.

After some nice appetizers of bruschetta and pizza bianco, our very large portions of spaghetti came.  Almost American-sized portions!  Amara had a gorgonzola sauce, Narisa had a boring but excellent bolognese, I had Pasticciati (see photo above for description, bottom right) while Sean had something else which didn't turn out to be as spicy as he thought it would be.  All in all, an excellent (if extremely carb-heavy) meal.

After dinner, we strolled up to the Trevi Fountain where each of us threw in a coin over our left shoulder.  As you should know, that ensures that we will all return to Rome one day.  The fountain was especially beautiful at night, all lit up.

Then on to San Crispino, the gelateria featured in Eat, Pray, Love.  But you'll have to wait for my mega-gelato post to hear more about that...
