I believe I know my city well, and I hope I can point you in the right direction, whether you want to spend a gourmet evening in a starred restaurant, more informal dinner in a small trattoria, or enjoy a good pizza. I have to say that we are lucky and you don’t have to walk far to find excellent restaurants, trattorias, pizzerias, but also if you feel like cooking, safe addresses where to go shopping. Even less than 2 minutes away. I don’t pretend to be exhaustive and absolute I have simply included the places I would recommend to a friend, limiting myself to those easily or worth a trip. Rome is the second city in Italy after Naples for the number of starred restaurants. (19). Of these 12 are within a short distance of the flat 8 within 5′ minutes. When I say minutes I am referring to the time it takes to walk there. Please note prices are indicative and do not include drinks.

About Trattoria
Traditional Roman dishes are usually enjoyed in a trattoria. Rome is full of trattorias, from the oldest to the newest, and each has its own group of admirers or detractors. But almost every trattoria has something in common with the others: a menu based on the most typical local cuisine specialities. Trattoria should mean: Simple food, and in theory with genuine tastes and quality, prepared at home and with local products and at a reasonable price. But the reality is often very different: it is difficult to find a trattoria with modest prices and excellent food, or rather, if compared to what they offer, they can be very high.  Apart from a few exceptions, don’t expect very comfortable surroundings and attentive service, Instead, the fundamental rule is the approximation, with a pretentiously blunt service, even too much.
Don’t be attracted by the checked tablecloths.
Many bad restaurants use them just to attract customers.

The following is a selection of the most popular ones, some of which are so popular that reservations are necessary. They are all easily accessible apart from a few, which I wanted to include the average cost of a meal in a trattoria anyway varies from €30 to €50, but rest assured it is almost always closer to €50.

About Pizza
For a long time, pizza was considered a simple, quick and, above all, cheap meal. Pizzerias were simply unadorned rooms, often with tablecloths, anonymous pizza makers and hurried waiters. Now even pizzaioli want their place in the sun. We are experiencing the season of Pizzaioli Star, who sign their premises and their pizza and propose new doughs, different types of leavening and flour types, and above all, gourmet pizzas.  Many pizzerias and many pizza types, some excellent and others with pizza, have only the name in common. Pizza is one of the most popular dishes globally, and everyone is free to make pizza as they see fit.  The pizza must be ordered in pizzerias, preferably with a wood-fired oven. All other places serve frozen pizza.

All illustrative images are taken from the official pages of each restaurant.

Salumeria con Cucina

Less than 200 metres from the flat, Certainly in the area but undoubtedly throughout the city, Roscioli is synonymous with good food.

A restaurant and a delicatessen and rotisserie, Roscioli is a “gourmet shop with a kitchen”, a true paradise for lovers of the best gastronomic delicacies. Although too small, almost cramped, tables too close together, always crowded, it has its charm, and every day dozens of people queue up. The menu is based on the great classics of Roman cuisine such as amatriciana, cacio e pepe. And according to many, the best carbonara in Rome. But also cold cuts, meat, cheese, hamburgers, fresh fish. The food is excellent, an extraordinary selection of our country’s best, but the prices are definitely high. Reservations are mandatory.

Alba Esteve Ruiz, the talented Spanish-Italian chef, is at the helm of this new restaurant in a quaint little street near Campo di Fiori. The blue and gold ambience is elegant but so rich in detail that it may be slightly excessive.

But the only real player is the fire, the living fire of the charcoal oven and the Argentine grill, which is also the element on which the cuisine is based. But alongside the dishes prepared on the grill, meat, fish and vegetables, you will find the dishes that have made this young chef famous, such as the Risotto Ginger, Butter and Anchovies, the Carbonara, Fettuccine with Sicilian black flour, wild boar and parmesan cheese,

The cuisine is always very much linked to traditional Roman dishes:  Coratella e cicoria, parmigiana di melanzane, tortino di alici fritte, fettuccine con regaglie di pollo, rigatoni con pajata, spaghetti all’amatriciana, abbacchio scottadito, trippa alla romana, pollo con i peperoni, saltimbocca alla romana, pasta e ceci, baccalà,  minestra broccoli e arzilla,  i carciofi.
Armando al Pantheon has existed since 1961 and is one of the best-known restaurants and listed in all the gastronomic guides, making reservations almost compulsory. Prices are in proportion to its fame, about 50€.

In Piazza del Teatro di Pompeo, just a few metres from Piazza Campo di Fiori, is Luciano Monosilio’s restaurant. Luciano Monosilio is a Michelin-starred chef and recipient of many awards, including Best Chef under 30, and is considered the king of Carbonara.  Now he has decided to open his own restaurant centred on his favourite ingredient, pasta. And needless to say, pasta is the star here. Made in the open laboratory that is an integral part of the restaurant: Rigatoni, Lasagne, Ravioli, Tonnarelli and which you can also buy to take away. At the table, it is served according to traditional recipes, the cacio e pepe, the amatriciana, the famous Carbonara. But there is no lack of other dishes that belong to the culinary tradition of our country.

ALFREDO alla Scrofa

The Fettuccine Alfredo’s recipe (a very simple dish made with egg pasta seasoned with butter and Parmesan cheese) was invented in 1914 by Alfredo, owner of this restaurant in Via della Scrofa,
He prepared this dish for his wife, the woman liked it so much that it was included in the menu, soon becoming the dish of strength! Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, tasting that dish of pasta during their honeymoon in Rome, were so enthusiastic that they gave Alfredo two gold cutlery, spoon, and fork engraved the dedication “To Alfredo the King of Noodles”, making it famous in the world.
Over time, Alfredo’s restaurant became a favourite haunt of American stars and those who frequented Rome’s, Dolce Vita.  Even today, after more than one hundred years, this restaurant still serves the famous fettuccine, which is accompanied by a culinary proposal entrusted to chef Mirko Moglioni, always based on traditional dishes but more in step with the times.

Fernanda and chef Davide Del Duca’s kitchen have been the gastronomic revelation of recent years. It is a modern bistro-restaurant, or modern “osteria”, of design, with an open kitchen, presenting gourmet dishes, creative elaborations of the chef’s flair and talent.  His Bucatini all’Amatriciana have become legendary, as has his Cappelletto alla Birra with mushrooms, but many of his other culinary creations are not to be missed.  The service is excellent. Definitely one of the best places of its kind.

Roman Cuisine

Roman dishes

Roman Cuisine

The typical Roman cuisine is one of the tastiest and oldest in our country and one of the best known. The essential ingredients are the offal (Guts or refusal), the tail, the head, the so-called fifth quarter, i.e. what remains of the cattle after the separation of the noblest parts, which were once intended only for the aristocrats. Roman cuisine consists of popular, simple, very tasty recipes rich in fats, flavours, spices and seasonings.

Typical Roman dishes

Spaghetti alla carbonara, Bucatini all’amatriciana, (which in reality was not originally a Roman dish even if together with Carbonara they are an emblem), Tonnarelli cacio e pepe, Rigatoni con la Pajata, spaghetti ajo ojo e peperoncino, penne all’arrabbiata.  Pasta and Bean Soup, Chickpea Soup, Roman Style Gnocchi, Saltimbocca alla romana, Involtini alla romana, Coda alla vaccinara, Abbacchio alla romana, Abbacchio a scottadito, Chicken with peppers, Trippa alla romana, Coratella with artichokes, Beans with pork rinds, Cod fillet. Artichoke alla Romana, Artichoke alla giudìa, Puntarelle with anchovies, Ripassata chicory, Endive and anchovies, Romanesco broccoli, Supplì, Pumpkin flowers, Puntarelle salad. Sour cherry tar.

Wines obviously include those of the Castelli Romani, with Frascati leading the way.
For good wines from the region, you can refer to these labels:
Casale del Giglio, Cotarella, Tenuta di Fiorano, Pallavicini, Falesco, Cantina Sant’Andrea, Fontana Candida, Sergio Mottura, Poggio Le Volpi, Federici, Villa Simone, Damiano Cioli, Castel De Paolis.






Roman dishes and where to eat them.

The dishes of Roman cuisine can be enjoyed everywhere, whether in the gourmet version in gourmet restaurants, in traditional restaurants or in the classic and very popular trattorias that are the place to go for this cuisine.  Once upon a time, it was said: “In Rome, you eat well everywhere”, unfortunately, this is not true, and very often, you will come across places where these simple dishes are cooked in a more than approximate manner. It is up to you to choose where to enjoy authentic Roman cuisine, whether in more refined and obviously more expensive establishments or in more affordable, noisy but cheerful establishments, with service that is, to say the least, hasty if not crude. Still, the latter is part of being Roman. Although I love Roman cuisine very much, I am personally not a fan of this type of catering, which is usually very popular.

Sora Lella

Trattoria Sora Lella is an absolute must when it comes to Roman cuisine, firstly because it is a bastion of the city’s catering industry, and secondly because of the celebrity of its owner Sora Lella (now deceased), one of the most popular characters in our city, thanks to her participation in many successful films of the 80s, and among other things sister of the equally famous Aldo Fabrizi, (the priest in the film Roma Città Aperta by Roberto Rossellini) Sora Lella, in the centre of the Tiber Island, with over 60 years of history, is a cornerstone of traditional Roman cuisine: Coda alla Vaccinara; Coratella d’abbacchio; tripe alla romana; broccoli and arzilla pasta; pasta and chickpeas with clams; pasta and beans; abbacchio alla scottadito, home-made desserts, with the inevitable ricotta cake and ice cream. Prices are a little higher than average. And the service is a little too hasty.

Trattoria Sora Lella is now run by Sora Lella’s grandchildren.

Checchino dal 1887


Checchino dal 1887  is a cornerstone of Roman restoration, located in the Testaccio district. It is located in Testaccio, right in front of the old slaughterhouse, now a museum.
Entering this restaurant, you take a step back into the past and into Roman cuisine. The traditional Roman dishes are all there and cooked expertly. There are a well-stocked wine list and an experienced sommelier. It is obviously a very traditional restaurant, classic in every way, with adequately spaced tables, an old-fashioned atmosphere, waiters in their old uniforms but who know how to deal with customers. It’s one of those restaurants you can try during a holiday in Rome. Slightly high prices.
The halls of this restaurant are inside the Monte dei Cocci,  named  Monte dei cocci because made of potsherds, pieces of amphorae from the Imperial and Republican eras of ancient Rome, which were piled up here, and over time have formed a hill about 50 metres high and 1 km wide. Checchino’s cellar, which you can visit, is dug out of the shards.

 Jewish-Roman cuisine

Roman cuisine is flanked and complemented by that of the Jewish-Roman tradition. Its cod fillets or courgette flowers, sour cherry tart, artichokes alla giudia, anchovies with endive, sweetbreads with artichokes, all of which can be tried in the restaurants of the Ghetto.
(Among the many kosher rules is the stringent prohibition on eating meat and milk together, which means that there must be no contamination of any kind in the kitchen, so you will never find dairy products in a meat restaurant).
Just 5 minutes from the flat, Rome’s Jewish Ghetto is not only a destination but a gastronomic must if you want to get in touch with Jewish-Roman cuisine. Of course, like all tourist destinations, it may have some unpleasant surprises, especially in the bill. In the Ghetto, you can find both street food and the classic trattorias, and the food served follows kosher rules. 

Keep in mind that almost all restaurants and shops in this area will be closed every Friday night and Saturday due to Shabbat (Friday sunset to Saturday sunset).

Romana or Napoletana?

In Rome, you can find two types of pizza.

Pizza alla Romana, and Pizza alla Napoletana

Roman-style pizza is very thin, almost crunchy in the mouth,     

The Neapolitan pizza is high and soft and is distinguished by its high edge, the so-called cornicione

Until recently, for a good pizza, you had to go to the suburbs. Fortunately, there have been new openings or transfers in the centre in the last season, so it is almost no longer necessary to make a long journey to enjoy a good pizza.

A good coffee, a delicious croissant.


It is believed that the coffee you drink in Italy is the best globally; this is not true. In fact, coming across great coffee is a rarity. And even in the same café, it is possible to drink good coffee or bad coffee. Many causes influence the result, the blend, the machine, the barista himself.
These are the bars I would recommend where the coffee is, on average good, as are the cappuccinos and croissants homemade (the croissants, to be really good,  must be homemade).

Italians have the habit of starting the day with a coffee and having breakfast with a cappuccino and a croissant.

The average cost of a coffee at the counter is 1€ /1.20, a cappuccino 1.20/1.80, a croissant 1€/2.€. Served at the table, the price at least triples.

Among the hundreds of ice-cream parlours in every corner of the city, it is difficult to know who makes a truly artisanal ice-cream without additives and colourings.

You don’t have to go far to find great addresses for quality food products. Less than 100 metres away, you’ll find supermarkets, grocery shops, bakeries, butchers, fish markets, gourmet shops, delicatessens, fruit shops, as well as the famous Campo di Fiori outdoor market*.
Although if not glamorous places, supermarkets are the cheapest and safest places to shop. Apart from the certainty of having affordable costs (except for fruit and vegetables), you will always find average or almost good quality in every product. For excellences, I will point you to other good addresses more or less close by here, of course, the prices here are certainly higher.

Open-Air Market

Fruit and Vegetabels

The market in Campo di Fiori is undoubtedly popular and equally famous, a reputation that comes from the past but no longer corresponds to reality.  The market may be beautiful to visit, and you will find lots of fruit and vegetable stalls and a lot of poor quality. Don’t be seduced by the stalls selling spices, oils, bottles of vinegar, etc.  Campo di Fiori is not the place to buy them, nor is it the place to buy coloured pasta – Italians don’t eat coloured pasta and don’t use that kind of spice in their cooking.  The best stands to purchase fruit and vegetables are those on the left-hand side coming from the flat.  Distance 2′

A good place to buy fruit and vegetables is in Trastevere just beyond Ponte Sisto.

If you like local products and have a direct relationship with producers near the Circus Maximus, I recommend the market for friendly shopping.

They are all zero-km agricultural products, guaranteed, safe, and of high quality: fruit, vegetables, cheese, dairy products, fish, bread and baked goods, cereals, flour and pasta, pulses, oil, fresh meat, cured meats, honey, preserves, fresh raw milk, plants and flowers and much more. It is also possible to have lunch inside the market.

Prices are higher than in ordinary supermarkets and are careful where you don’t see the price, to avoid unpleasant surprises.
