The last restaurant review (Full disclosure: I use the term loosely, as it was more of a glowing, completely biased recommendation of my favourite restaurant in the city) I wrote of a restaurant in Rome told you of how close it was to The Spanish Steps and the Piazza del Popolo.

But the jewel in the crown of this luxury hotel is – hands down – the Bayview Restaurant.
