Ristorante McDonald's di Roma

Okay, I am going to tell you a word.
Your job is to listen and tell me what you think. Ready?
So, how does that you make you feel?
Sure, sure. It's a little psycho babble question we therapists like to ask. But it seems to me that often, people can either love or hate McDonald's.
Well we loved it, and we loved it in Rome!
And here's two reasons why we loved it: Bathrooms and diet Coke.
Have you been there? Traveling in a big city when you have to go? And no place to go? Rome was very warm. We developed a thirst as we walked up the Spanish Steps. Nature called and we searched for help. McDonald's answered.
We spotted it down the street. The Golden Arches gave it away. And what a place it was. This McDonalds in Rome is reputed to be world's biggest! It comes complete with a salad bar, a massive dessert counter, spreads itself across several floors and maintains a 425 seat dining area.

Oh, and they have diet coke. They call it Light Coke. Them and the rest of Rome. The word "diet" may be politically incorrect. I don't know. But we happily filled up.
And before we left they gave us a map of Rome that locates every McDonald's in town.
All nine of them.
I'm lovin' it!

We get the same results from Starbucks. They're everywhere, a clean restroom, coffee instead of coke. Have a great trip! Katy and David

Growing up my favorite thing was Mcdonalds french fries and chicken nuggets! Here in Israel McDonalds is not so wonderful but I think it is the only place in the world you can find McShwarma and McFalafel!!

I don't like McDonald's... I haven't eaten in one since the evening of 30 December of 2000. I have never been a massive fan of burgers and the night I craved one and ate it I got so sick I had a horrible time on New Years T.T
