Street food, comfort food, pizza, “prosciutteria”, appetizers, fried foods and gourmet take-away vegans; Rome counterattacks Milan and the Expo. Amazing restaurant locations with terraces and breathtaking views only Rome can offer.
Let’s start from the top: Hi-Res or High Restaurant, the terrace of the hotel Valadier a few steps from Piazza del Popolo signed by the Roman chef Luca Cardinetti. Try the artichokes with prawns tartare, the superspaghettone with scampi, citron and breadcrumbs , the lamb in lavender oil , and the sublime bread , homemade desserts.
Missing your burger? Brillo burger and Beer is a delightful little place. It serves “all day” hamburger specialties prepared with quality meat (Piedmont fassona, Danish beef, black angus US) . But give a try to the “ciriola” with Sorano sausage and chicory!
Looking for authentic but perfected street food: while strolling in Trastevere stop at Mama Frites: the Neapolitan tradition in gluten free version or bio flour, without additives and preservatives. They offer a wide selection of delicacies, gluten-free craft beers and a selection of local and national wines. Do not leave without tasting typical “Cuoppo” All the breads are homemade.
Also worth a visit the new Cantina Belsiana. Handwritten on the blackboard the plates of the day and the suggested wines from their “cellar”. Sundries and commendable selection of cold cuts and cheeses from small artisan producers of Lazio and Tuscany. Great retreat for even a glass of Shiraz and a bruschetta with truffle.
A few minutes from the Pantheon, the Gran Caffè Sant’Eustachio, historical cafeteria . Only the coffee is worth a stop then try the sweets, cakes, pies, desserts of every Italian region. Very cozy room upstairs facilities.
At the heart of Via Veneto Bottega Italia is a restaurant, a market, a delicatessen, a place to buy, taste, eat, share, and enjoy company. Ideal for a pizza with friends, for a brunch or a meal to take away.
