And new entry for you: the manual whitegrass juicer Z-star, basically a single auger, masticating type of juicer without the motor, which means the same process of extraction with no heat and better preservation of nutrients and enzymes.
This juicer is easy to use, and you can also juice a pretty wide variety of produce in the Z-star, such as leafy greens (obviously), as well as harder produce like carrots, apples, ginger and even softer fruits like tomatoes. I love it! let me know;))
Our neighborhood has a lively feel during the day, as well as an entertaining nightlife. Wine bars, theatre, fine restaurants and traditional pizzerias are all a few steps away. The neighborhood is also home to small shops, organic and bio and to a local market "Mercato Trionfale" which is a good starting point for exploring the culinary heart of Roman culture. Finally, if part of your stay in Rome includes a little shopping, you can enjoy the famous "Via Cola di Rienzo", one of the more elegant and refined shopping streets of Rome.

Sita made us most welcome with delicious fruit on a hot late Rome night even though she had just gotten married a few days before ! Sita's apartment is very charming with beautiful artwork and carefully chosen furniture. There is an incrdible library in Italian and English. We particualry loved the kitchen . You must go to the food market on Andrea Doria that Sita recommends nearby, we bought cheeses and fruits and fresh pasat and bread and had a feast. The cafe opposite the market is a cheerful and inexpensive cafe for breakfast . The views from the windows are glorious and there is a welcome strong breeze in the evening. We will stay here again in a heart beat if we have the chance.

Sita Alessandra haben wir als eine sehr umsichtige Gastgeberin erlebt. Sie hat uns schon vor der Reise mit vielen ausführlichen und nützlichen Informationen versorgt, uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns jederzeit ihre Unterstützung angeboten, obwohl ein Familienfest bevorstand. Die Wohnung haben wir wie beschrieben vorgefunden. Sie hat den Charme einer Altbauwohnung. Die Kuppel auf dem Foto ist tatsächlich die des Petersdoms, weiter links reicht der Blick bis zu den Castelli. Alles ist für Sitas persönliche Nutzung sehr individuell eingerichtet und zeugt von ihren vielfältigen Interessen. Allein die Bibliothek ist sehens- und lesenswert. Das Viertel ist sympathisch, mit kleinen Bars und Restaurants, der Vatikan liegt in fußläufiger Entfernung. Auch andere Sehenswürdigkeiten haben wir teilweise zu Fuß erkunden können (Metro-Streik!)
Cara Irene grazie per il tuo apprezzamento e per la bella recensione! Spero entro l'anno di rinnovare i sanitari e apportare altre migliorie alla mia casa, cercando di non modificare lo stile originario anni 40 che tanto mi piace:)) Grazie ancora, sarete sempre i benvenuti! ciao Sita Alessandra
Sits was welcoming and wonderful. We loved the apartment and the location was pretty good - close to the metro and quiet. The street and the building itself are beautiful. We recommend it wholeheartedly!
We had a lovely 3 night stay in Sita's apartment in Rome.
Sita is a very friendly and helpful person. She helped me with everything that I asked for, from booking taxis to guides...
The apartment is a a cosy place with all basic necessities. The kitchen is well stocked. Beds comfortable. The view from the balcony is amazing and the natural light falling in the house is beautiful. Due to some technical issues the wifi wasn't working and Sita was very kind and thoughtful to give us a refund for the same...
There are some nice eateries around and as Sita suggests Nicos was our favourite too. The metro is a short walk and you are in the city centre in 15 minutes. The Vatican is a 20 minute walk.
Whenever I visit Rome again I will be back at Sita's apartment!
My sister, mother and I stayed at Sitas apartment a couple of days. She was very helpful and nice. Her apartment is situated close to the Vatican which was very convenient. The apartment is lovely and it has a balcony with a beautiful view. Unfortunately we had rainy days so we couldnt experience the roof top but another time maybe. :)
Una casa molto accogliente !! La vista della cappella di San Pietro è perfetto !! Siamo stati accolti bene e abbiamo avuto tutta l'attenzione necessaria !! Grazie mille !! Dio benedica!!
Sita gave great instructions on the best way to get to her apartment. When we arrived Sita and her husband made us very welcome and left us with flowers, a bottle of wine, fruit and sticky buns. Her apartment is spacious, comfortable and cosy. We had a lovely stay and highly recommend both Sita and her apartment. Rome is amazing - I want to go back!

About the Host, Sita Alessandra
Si impara così, giorno dopo giorno, offrendo ciò che si ama: in questo caso una casa con vista cangiante dove il sole e il tramonto ti sorprendono ogni giorno, con la luce e i suoi cieli sempre mutevoli, l'aria quasi di mare, e poi ancora i libri e la musica di una vita perché tutto questo non può esser solo mio!
Sono italo indiana, mi sento cittadina del mondo e amo viaggiare e accogliere. Tra le passioni il cinema e le case. Come dice un mio maestro di vita "Non ho mai creduto in un’unica verità, né in quella mia né in quella degli altri; sono convintoa che tutte le scuole, tutte le teorie possono esere utili in un dato luogo e in una data epoca; ma ho scoperto che è possibile vivere soltanto se si ha un’ardente e assoluta identificazione con un punto di vista. A mano a mano che il tempo passa, che noi cambiamo, che il mondo cambia, tuttavia, gli obiettivi si modificano e il punto di vista muta.
(...) Se vogliamo, infatti, che un punto di vista sia di qualche aiuto, bisogna dedicarvisi con tutte le nostre forze, difenderlo fino alla morte. Nello stesso tempo, però, una voce interiore sussurra: “Non prenderti troppo sul serio. Tienti forte e lasciati andare con dolcezza”. Peter Brook (in "Il punto in movimento")
Here I am half italian half indian: I'm passionate about movies music and theatre! if you visit Rome, I'll be happy to host here! see you soon:) in my house you will find books spices music & a homemade guide of my favourites places nearby.. the best gelaterie pizzerie restaurants wine bar bio organic shops and more and more... a lot to discover:)) I like to share my experiences and knowledges with you...
