Restaurants In Rome, Italy

The Azienda di Promozione Turistica di Roma (Tourist Board of Rome) supports the initiative patronized by ARSIAL (Regional Agency for the Development and Innovation of Agriculture in Lazio) and FIPE (Italian Federation of Public Concerns) aiming In the promotion of traditional Roman cuisine.

Eating in Rome

Usually, one only orders a cappuccino with breakfast. Although you can probably get one later on in the day, most of the locals will look at you strangely. There are many local bakeries which offer wonderful breads, pastries and other gastronomic delights. One of the more popular items in Rome is called 'Suppli al telefono' or, more simply, 'suppli'. It is a ball of rice wrapped around mozzarella cheese and then breaded and fried. When you bite into it, the melted cheese oozes out and resembles a telephone wire! During lunch, there is no better way to experience Italy than to go to a pizza shop. Try to experiment outside of your comfort zone as you may find some wonderful pizzas with such things as sliced, hard boiled eggs or mayonnaise. Dinner starts a little later in the evening than many are used to. The Italians are very social people, even more so during a meal and are likely to try to find you a companion when dining.

The restaurants listed below have obtained the trademark of “typicality” that certifies their attention to ingredients, the use of local products, respect for authentic traditional recipes and the offer of wines from Lazio on the wine list. The grant of the “Ristorante Tipico” (Typical Restaurant) trademark is verified on an annual basis and only authorized concerns can display the decalcomania with the logo of the initiative.

Coffee

'Latte' in Italian is just milk and so you need to say "cafe latte." A 'latte macchiato' is steamed milk stained with a smaller shot of espresso. 'Espresso' is just a shot of coffee. 'Espresso doppio' means a double shot of espresso, while 'espresso macchiato' is espresso 'marked' with a dab of steamed milk. 'Americano' is filtered coffee. 'Cappuccino' is not so popular with Italians and not normally drunk other than in the mornings.

Ice-cream

Generally you pay for your ice-cream first and then show your receipt to the server. When asked "panna?" This means "do you want whipped cream on top?"

Pizza

The best pizza is served in the evening when the wood oven has heated up. For a typical local meal try one of the fried items such as battered salt cod for a starter, followed by a pizza. Pizzas tend to be very thin-crusted. Avoid the tourist areas where prices are high and the pizza is poor. Pizza al taglio is pizza by the slice, point to the one you want and the size as it's sold by weight.

Trippa

Trippa is tripe. Offal is a Roman tradition, e.g. osso buco, bone marrow.
