From the classic trattorias to hidden taverns, from starred restaurants to street food venues, here are some of the best places to enjoy the genuine flavors of Roman and Italian cuisine.
Located in the center of the Ostiense district, the Trattoria Pennestri offers a cuisine that balances tradition with innovation, and welcomes you in an informal and cheerful environment. The cuisine is characterized by fresh, quality ingredients, with particular attention to traditional Roman dishes and pairings with local and national wines from the trattoria’s extensive menu.
This restaurant is famous for its friendly, retro atmosphere, with wooden tables that represent the center of conviviality and good food. The menu includes a large selection of traditional Roman dishes, prepared by Sarah Cicolini from ingredients of the highest quality. Try their cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper) and bowl of coda e lingua (tail and tongue), to be paired with a good bottled wine or a glass of your choice wines directly from the cask.
A modern-day trattoria in the Ostiense district, run by two second-generation brothers, Trecca’s culinary philosophy is based on fresh, seasonal products, creativity in the interpretation of traditional Roman dishes and a cheerful and enjoyable wine list. Try the artichokes the Roman way, the corned tongue and the timeless coda alla vaccinara (oxtail stew).
A traditional establishment in Campo de’ Fiori, this restaurant is known throughout Rome for its traditional salads and appetizers, such as bread, butter and anchovies or the puntarelle (a variety of chicory), but above all for the fabulous fillet of cod, cooked to perfection to be eaten even on the street as one of the original street foods. In this restaurant you will enjoy an informal and lively environment, where you can spend a cheerful evening of tasty cuisine.
Located in the San Lorenzo district, this place offers the best Roman pizza made with agricultural flours, sourdough and fermented fruit dough. Welcoming you in a homey environment, Carlo and his companion pay special attention to the raw material in a philosophical way that is quite an obsession in order to guarantee you a Roman pizza experience at the highest levels. Digestible and light, Fariné’s pizza is an absolute must-try!
Located just a short distance from the Spanish Steps, this restaurant with a thirty-year history is known for its cuisine that ranges from traditional to modern and for its friendly, sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere. Surrounded by the works of BZarro, you will find a menu that includes a variety of choices of seafood and meat dishes, typical dishes from Roman cuisine, and an amatriciana (a traditional Italian pasta sauce based on cheek lard, pecorino cheese, and tomato sauce) which, according to Claudio, a native of Amatrice who has always managed it, is truly worth trying!
