Over time, Roman cuisine retains its preparation simplicity, its raw flavour and its usage of high quality local products. Many typical dishes such as fragrant roasts, “la pajata”, “le puntarelle”, artichoke were born from Italian cooking basics. These are everyday recipes, orally passed down through generations ,that takes inspiration from Italians traditions. From dish to dish, from treat to treat, today Romans cuisine is healthy, tasty, simple and a huge example of creativity.
There are plenty of “Trattorie” in Roma, especially in its wonderful district “Trastevere”. Otherwise if you love suburbs, places nearby such as lakes of Bolsena and Bracciano offers a mix of traditional and modern atmosphere.
Taverna Trilussa (Trastevere – Roma)
Taverna Trilussa it the typical Romans Transtevere Restaurant. Some says that Fatima’s Third secret is the recipe of “ravioli mimosa” cooked in this location. You eat directly from the pan. Its “trittico” dessert is flavoursome. You should make a reservation for it as soon as you sit down because it could end very fast. Necessary booking request whit a medium price of 50 €.
Antica Osteria Rugantino (Trastevere – Roma)
Excellent preparation of the most traditional Italian dishes. Want to eat artichoke even if it’s not the season? Want some “puntarelle”? just ask and you’ll get satisfied. Tradition without compromise in a well looking place merged with the magical Trastevere atmosphere . Good Stuff.
Checco er Carrettiere ( Trastevere – Roma)
This is the typical Transtevere Restaurant that draws your attention due to its casual, row and welcoming atmosphere. A traditional kitchen placed in a folksy building with a little garden that offers to the customers Roman cuisine: tasty “Pasta alla carbonara”, the best I’ve ever eaten, as well as artichoke “alla Giuda”, good homemade wine and good desserts. The only flaw was the waiting service: staff wasn’t enough kind with the exception of the owner. Good quality/price ratio.
La Scala in Trastevere (Trastevere – Roma)
The Waiting service is careful and friendly. Its quality/price ratio is absolutely fair compared with the other restaurant of Trastevere. Usually it’s not so crowded but it’s hard to say why.
Ai Bozzi (Trastevere – Roma)
This restaurant is located in the backside of Viale Trastevere so it’s not that easy to find a place to leave your car. Those who wants to eat in this district knows it well but don’t get mad, you can park your car nearby in the Lungotevere parking zone. Let’s get on the point. How about Food? Flavourful Fish starter, we can define it original and made of excellent raw ingredients. Waiting service warm and kind.
Lazio is not Roma. The region stretch from Viterbo to Gaeta and each town or city has its own distinctive trait, It’s worth to visit them. Without any doubt you wont forget Romans rude speech style and it’s magical atmosphere.
Osteria la Francigena (Bolsena)
Rustic and warm restaurant enclosed with stone walls. Well decorated tables are combined with a warm and friendly waiting service. Tasty food and fair prices are the hub of this activity. The dessert is good too. The only flaw is waiting service, they should be a bit more professional.
Sapori di Gaeta (Gaeta)
This restaurant offers only Gaeta’s traditional dishes, such as “Tiella” waited in different ways. You can eat in the little restaurant, with few tables, or you can take-away, the dishes they prepare last 24 hours. In my humble opinion is better to eat it as soon as you can. Fair price after all.
Da Amina (Civitavecchia)
Flavoursome Dinner and warm welcome. I don’t know what to say, it seems you are in your house but you let some skilful chefs to cook for you. Exquisite food, very good on time waiting service and fair prices. You can’t ask for better restaurant, if you go one time you’ll certainly come back!
