For many tourists visiting Rome is going to take a picture of Colosseum, walk in Imperial Fora, turn to St. Peter’s Square, shopping along Via del Corso and eating frozen pizza in an expensive, but not good, restaurant on Piazza Navona. But what is more beautiful than plunge yourself in the local atmosphere when you travel? To pass unforgettable days as a true resident of the city, enjoy the traditional cuisine, feel part of the country we are visiting.

In Largo de’ Librari 88, near Campo de’ Fiori square, hidden by the uniqueness of the church in miniature, which is the backdrop of the street, stands Dar Filettaro. If you want to have an unusual happy hour, equip yourself with patience and let the queue. You will be rewarded by the quality of popular roman cod’s fillets, which you can eat in the magic square nearby. But if you really want to stop, sit on wood boards with checkered tablecloths and ask for a glass of red wine from the Castelli Romani.
Taste the famous “giudia artichokes” from Giggetto in Via del Portico d’Ottavia 21. The restaurant was opened in 23 by Giggetto and Sora Ines, the queen of the artichokes. Enjoy the artichoke leaf by leaf, until you get to the heart, the most tender and flavorful.
“Pajata” is one of the truest roman culinary tradition fundamental pillar. Delicate and delicious, it should be enjoyed with rigatoni, strong red sauce and huge grated pecorino. The taste may not appeal to everyone, since “pajata” is the suckling calf intestine, but we must try to judge. Oio a casa mia in Via Galvani 43 is the best restaurant to have this experience, as well as in addition to a menu in honor of roman dishes, it is also a pretty good environment as a outline. As is well worth a visit Cecchino in Via Monte Testaccio 30, which is not the cheapest restaurant in Rome, but it is the keeper of a great tradition: here it was born another traditional important dish, the “coda alla vaccinara”, the oxtail.
Finally, we must conclude our evening with the classic “grattachecca” (water ice with sweet syrup and fruit). At the edge of Trastevere there is the Fonte dell’oro, on the other hand there is Sora Mirella on the lungotevere Anguillari, doyenne of this specialty, or Sora Lella in Porta Cavalleggeri, who offers special grattachecche with seasonal fruit.
