What to taste in Rome

Roman cooking is mainly dominated by the earthy cooking of the working class. The tradition of Roman food is of course based also on pasta with dishes as Carbonara, Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe (This one is more connected to the traditions of the surroundings of Rome in the region of Lazio), but the most famous surely are Coda alla Vaccinara, Carciofi alla Giudea, Fiori di Zucca, Abbacchio al Forno.

Why don't you try to cook one of these dishes? Just ask us the best market to buy all the necessary and enjoy one of the specialities of Rome directly at home.

Pizza in Rome is instead something different. It is not part of the cooking traditions of the city (borns in Naples), but it has been revisited with a style difficult to find in the rest of Italy: the base of the Pizza is really thinner and crispier than you will find elsewhere in the country. There are several roman pizzerias in the central districts of the city, some of them have been described in the relevant pages of this section.

Where to eat in Rome

Here is a list of Rome restaurants in the vicinity of our holiday apartments. Each of the central areas of the city where we are present is characterized by its own traditions and typical restaurants / pizzerias. Make sure to try these restaurants and trattorias during your visit in Rome...We think good food makes traveling in Rome even more enjoyable!

Some General Suggestions to eat in Rome:
1 - Do not trust the restaurants with people outside inviting to enter. It never happens with the traditional restaurants of Rome where it is usually the opposite, if you do not book or wait often at least 30 minutes there is no chance to sit and eat.
2 - The menu should be in italian. It happens sometimes to get translations even in good restaurants, but the real roman trattoria or pizzeria does not have menu in other languages Probably there will be more problems in choosing, but the food will be for sure good and typical.
3 - Pane e Coperto charge is not anymore allowed in the bill in Rome. Every price should be fully included in the Menu.
