Rome dining with dietary restrictions

solder608 | Jan 15, 2008 05:14 AM

I will be traveling to Rome soon and, unfortunately, I am on a low-sodium diet. Most breads and cheeses have too much sodium for me to eat. As do most sauces (at least here in the US, though any added salt for me is too much).

I can eat plenty of pasta, olive oil, vegetables, and meats (as long as no salt is added). How difficult will this be? Would it be easy to convey to Italian staff that no salt be added to my meals? I don't want to be rude and I don't know how familiar they would be with such requests. Any advice? Thanks.
