Casa Bleve in Rome

ttoommyy | Jan 6, 2010 06:46 AM

We had the most amazing experience at Casa Bleve on Christmas Eve. Since we were lining up for midnight mass at St. Peters around 7 pm, we opted for a Christmas Eve lunch. Casa Bleve serves a "buffet" lunch that is better than most dinners at 4-star restaurants. Involtini, fresh mozzarella, vegetables, meats and cheeses are all beautifully displayed on a counter in this wine bar's dining room, which is warm, inviting and beautifully appointed. You step up to the counter and the very helpful (and patient!) waiter assembles a plate for you as you go down the line choosing anything you want. Once everyone in your party is finished with their choices, you retreat back to your table to begin enjoying a bottle of wine that hopefully you've already chosen from Casa Bleve's amazing wine list. Within minutes, the plates are brought to the table and each one is a masterpiece. I cannot say enough about the food at Casa Bleve. Fresh, beautiful to look at and best of all, out-of-this-world tasty. I would eat at Casa Bleve at least once a week if I lived in Rome!
