Abruzzi

The cooking here is typically Italian-delicious and well seasoned. Starters include ravioli with spinach and ricotta, pasta and bean soup, risotto with herbs, bucatini all'amatriciana and more. Second course dishes include roast pork and roulades, spaghetti with clams, fish risotto, and gilthead and bass cooked in various ways. The inner room is rather small and intimate which makes it suitable for couples. The air-conditioning is useful in summer while outside tables are protected by giant potted plants.

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.

Piccolo Arancio

The restaurant is not far from the Fontana di Travi in an almost hidden alleyway that is well-sheltered. Unfortunately it is hard to find parking in the area. The restaurant is pleasant with an excellent location and is professionally run. You can come in for post theatre dining on request. There are plenty of regulars who come here for the excellent Fritters, the Ossobuco and the Abbachio and on holy fish-eating days, Tuesdays and Fridays, there is a predominance of seafood. There are some special dishes such as the Farfalle with zucchini and curry. Round it all off with delicious dessert like the lemon mousse.

Il Desiderio Preso Per La Coda

A restaurant which boasts an imaginative, innovative cuisine, which could only be inspired by a comedy written by Picasso! The decor is elegant without being ostentatious, with excellent service. Too much to enjoy in one sitting: meatballs in saracen flour; crêpe Pisolini al latte (milk pancakes) with smoked meat and honey; tagliatelle with pumpkin flowers, pine nuts, zucchini and parmesan cheese; Tuscan meat dishes like peposo; vegetarian hamburgers with vegetables; the delicious scottiglia which is a mixture of meats served on a crust of home-made bread. It is excellent value for money.
