Enoteca Provincia Romana

A casual eatery and bar boasting of highly innovative local cuisine along with a spirit selection that will put the best of restaurants to shame, Enoteca Provincia Romana is one gem of a find in the heart of Rome.

La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali

The best kept secret of Rome is the 'Taverna dei Fori Imperiali. A family owned restaurant, its decorated just like a tourist spot with red and white checked table cloths. The menu is small with specials, but the quality makes up for what it lacks in quantity. Fresh pasta, veal, beef are experimented with for delicious meals. Try the 'Pappardelle with white truffles, and Pappardelle with Porcini mushrooms or egg stuffed meat loaf. Not only this they serve exquisite desserts. The carrot cake with chocolate sauce is delicious. Check out the website for more details.

Trattoria e Taverna Romana

A wonderful place to have a late night dinner as it is situated right next to the Colosseum and all major historic sights. The atmosphere is very "old Italian style", with wooden floor and paintings on the walls. The menu offers a great variety of pasta dishes, and some pizza. Try the gnocchi that is mouth-wateringly rich. Wine is served by the glass, and all major credit cards accepted, with reservations being preferred. The main attraction of this venue is the cheap prices for quality food that sets it apart from all its competitors.

L’Asino d’Oro

L’Asino d’Oro in Monti is renowned chef Lucio Sforza's gastronomic delight to the neighborhood and you will find the restaurant booked most of the times. The menu changes daily where the cuisine from Umbria takes center stage and signature dishes like game, pork and offal make as the starry casts. The restaurant has a warm ambiance with its soft lighting, comfy chairs and selective jazz music playing in the background. For lunch, the fixed menu for 12 euros is a steal. The food is excellent and is very affordable, do make some room for dessert as well.

Situated just a short walk away from Campo de' Fiori, Osteria La Quercia has more than just a beautiful location to offer you.
