(NEW YORK) — NBA superstar LeBron James knows how to have a good time! Just a few days after he wed his longtime partner, Savannah Brinson, in private ceremony in San Diego, James, 28, whisked his bride away for a romantic honeymoon in Italy.
On Wednesday night, the newlyweds enjoyed dinner at Antica Pesa in Rome. After starting off the meal with a strawberry salad, James and Brinson dug into the restaurant’s signature pasta, cacio e pepe, along with fusili served with a spicy monkfish ragout. Afterward, the Miami Heat player polished off a gilthead filet with grapes and a thyme crust, while Brinson enjoyed a ribeye steak, Roman style. They finished the meal with some sweet treats. “They were super casually dressed,” an eyewitness told ABC News, “And looked extremely in love and chic.”
The next day, James and Brinson donned sunglasses and their most comfortable clothes for a tour of the Colosseum. For the four-time NBA MVP, it was a dream come true. “Wow what an experience! The Colosseum up close and personal,” he wrote on Instagram. “#BucketList #Rome #MaximusAriliusDecimus #AreYouNotEntertained”
Guess they worked up an appetite! After a day of sightseeing, the couple unwound with another romantic dinner at Pierluigi, a Roman restaurant that dates back to 1938. “Dinner time at #Pierluigi restaurant in Rome,” James wrote. “#Honeymoon #GreatFood #NoFilterFollow”
