Vecchia Roma Rome

If you visit Vecchia Roma in the summer it’s lovely sitting outside on the piazza in the shadow of Santa Maria in Campitelli. Chef Raffaella generally makes large portions, so share one of her wonderful pasta dishes or go straight to the secondo. Seafood is the specialty, and simple southern Italian preparations. All very delicious.

Ditirambo Rome

IMG_3767

Small restaurant near Campo dei Fiori. Lively and inviting. Good varied menu combines Roman specialities like cacio e pepe, pasta with pecorino Romano sheep cheese and black pepper, with interesting innovations like thin slices of crisp potato with cheese fonduta, fondue, and slivers of black truffles. Excellent wine list with reasonable prices. Signora Antonia comes in each day to make the fresh pasta.
