Missing Rome..

Recommended Posts

Anybody else been to Italy and tasted the deliciousness that is "Cereal" brand from the Farmacias?

Oh man. I am missing Rome and their gluten free kindness.

For those that are going to Rome anytime soon--La Soffitta in Piazza Risorgimiento (near the Vatican) is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!!!! And they are the sweetest people.

I've been to Rome many times but never with my celiac disease diagnosis. We go to Italy twice a year and then to our house in Croatia - thankfully there is so much fresh yummy stuff including grilled fresh fish and seafood. But I still really, really miss the authentic Italian pizza, breads, pastas and so on. What is served at La Soffitta? I've never eaten there.


<p>Confirmed celiac disease February 2011 from biopsies. Strictly gluten free March 18 2011.Diagnosed with fibromyalgia April 13 2011.3 herniated discs, myofascial pain syndrome, IT band syndrome, 2 rotator cuff injuries - from an accident Dec. 07 - resulting in chronic pain ever since. Degenerative disc disease.Osteoarthritis in back and hips.Chronic insomnia mostly due to chronic pain.Aspartame free May 2011.

When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

It's gluten free heaven. They have pizza, pasta, dessert, and a dedicated fryer for calarmari/arancini etc. It was hands down the best food I have ever tested, both gluten-free and non gluten-free.
