An Evening in Trastevere…..

“Como e’ bella ce’ la luna brilla, stretti
Stretti como e’  bello passeggiar
Sotto il cielo di Roma

Down each avenue, street or strada
You can see ’em disappearin’ two by two
On an evenin’ in Roma

Do they take ’em for espresso, yeah, I guess so
On each lover’s arm a girl, I wish I knew
On an evenin’ in Roma

Though there’s grinin’ and mandolinin’ in sunny Italy
The beginning has just begun
When the sun goes down

So please meet me in the plaza near your casa
I am only one and one is much too few
On an evenin’ in Roma

Though there’s grining and mandolining in sunny Italy
The beginning has just begun
When the sun goes down”

….and so sang the one and only Dino Martino {Dean Martin} about an evening in Roma……..whether you want to admit it or not we all have a few romantic bones in us.  Some of us more than others, but nonetheless, tonight we serenade our way to romantic Trastevere….where any evening is fun and entertaining in pure Roman style, or “alla romana” as we say in sunny Italy!  Buona notte…………a presto……………Francesca
