Jamie says:  My Dad had been talking about seeing the Colosseum for years.  And this was the day.  It was awesome being there with my Dad for something that was so important to him.  After our visit, we grabbed lunch at Anti Luzzi Cafe.  It was nice to sit and relax after walking around and being in the heat.  I was looking for something not too bread/pasta-heavy, so I ordered roasted chicken.  They brought me the chicken breasts instead, but it did the trick.  I asked if I could have the veggies and potatoes, which I saw in the restaurant’s showcase instead of the side the chicken came with; the veggies looked a lot better than they tasted but were still pretty good.

Kathryn says: After our mid-day audio tour of the Colosseum, I cooled off with an iced coffee. Iced coffee in Italy never seems to come with ice in the cup, which is nice because then it doesn’t get watery.

For my meal, I ordered pizza topped with a whole lot of amazing ingredients – hard-boiled eggs (that was a first), artichokes, mushrooms and ham. It tasted so fresh and flavorful that I ate most of it (minus the crust and some of the bread), and left feeling full, happy and recharged.

Jamie says:  Before heading back to Gainesville, Kathryn and I had to satisfy our craving for a Sonny’s “chickensteak” hogie (Sonny’s spells hoagie h-o-g-i-e…wierd, I know) at Sonny’s Famous Steak Hogies in Hollywood (1857 N. 66th Avenue, Hollywood, FL 33024; tel. 954-989-0561).  This hole-in-the-wall restaurant, just recently received some fame by being highlighted on The Food Network and published in our local newspapers (the Sun-Sentinel and the Miami Herald)!  Because we don’t eat red meat, Kathryn and I ask for the steak hogie to be made with chicken.  We load it up with mushrooms, onions, green bell pepper, and provolone cheese; and order the red sauce on the side (to dip the bread in).  The bread is made fresh daily at the restaurant.  We also enjoy the salad, which is served with a hefty portion of Gorgonzola cheese (we also reserve the salad bowl to dip the bread in the dressing).  And I know this may sound silly, but Sonny’s Famous Steak Hogies Restaurant serves THE BEST ice in their beverages (Tijuana Flats takes a close second place).  Although the restaurant is simple, the food and service is great!  (The prices are very reasonable; but it’s cash only.)
