Where to eat in Rome

You will have heard many things about Rome, and that’s ok: a bit of confusion is compulsory when in Rome, it’s part of the rules of this city. Rome is the capital of Italy and its neighbourhoods are called “rioni”, which are just like small and lively villages where people meet in bars, markets and emporiums. Only in Rome you can find la Magica (the Roman football team), the Pantheon, l’Olimpico (the stadium) and Grattachecca. But also “gricia”, “cacio e pepe”, and “maritozzi”. We advise you to try some restaurants characterized by a mix of different cuisines, such as Retrobottega and Santo Palato. This guide is a journey among some of the best spots for good quality food. Have a look at the map, and get inspired by it to choose where to go.

Only in this city: Roman fast food

In each WithGusto guide you will find a selection of hidden gems that you can find only in a certain city: they are places that reflect a specific cuisine or a gastronomic vocation that reflects the tastes and culture of that particular place. Here in Rome we have selected the best restaurants for baccalà, allesso, and supplì. We have reported the pioneers of artisan breweries and the not to be missed spots for a correct “Roman gourmet education”.

The Cacio e Pepe, not cacio e pepe

Among these pages the names of Roman dishes have capital letters: the reason is to pay homage to the classics of Roman cuisine that are often mistreated. In this guide you will find the best restaurants where you need to go in order to learn about real Roman traditional and contemporary cuisine. Does the name “Roman Pizza” deserve capital letters as well? Of course it does: in the street food section you can find all the best places to enjoy pizza such as Bonci, Pier Daniele Seu and Gatta Mangiona.

One day trips

Crossing Rome is a journey, getting outside of Rome is a discovery. We made this guide also for those that want to know the surroundings of their incredible city. Moreover, through this guide we will take you to eat ice cream at Frascati and pasta Amatriciana in iornucopia in Grottaferrata.

Must have dishes and events

If you are in a hurry or if you only have a weekend to visit a city, we tell you which are the must have dishes and where to eat them. Among all of them we have selected cacio e pepe, puntarelle, supplì, amatriciana, Gricia, artichoke alla giudia, coda alla vaccinara, vignarola , white pizza, sour cherry cake and Maritozzo.
We selected the most interesting gastronomic events and we had a chat with a local and an expat, to explore the city from the point of view of someone that was born in Rome and someone who chose to move and live there. We spoke with a Roman gastronome, Francesca Romana Castellani, and a German sommelier, Hande Leimer.

An interactive gastronomic map

In our Rome WithGusto guide you will find an online map to consult while on the road: each icon features a type of address, from breakfast to cocktails, to allow you to choose your favourite destination depending on where you are.

Who is Rome WithGusto for?

Rome WithGusto is a gastronomic guide for those who want to enjoy the most interesting spots of the city. We recommended all the locations and tips for those of you who are always hungry, ready to have good food and want to enjoy every moment of their trip.

Hi, I’m Rossella Di Bidino, and I have been living in Rome for 15 years, I believe. I was born in Friuli Venezia Giulia and I’ve stopped counting the years that separate me from polenta. In the “Eternal City” I have a double life and I am not ashamed about that. I’m an economist and I’m a person who likes to play with words and ingredients, although I often get lost between pubs and travels. “Ma che ti sei mangiato” was the blog from which it all started. I wrote for myself, for Mulino Bianco, Group On Magazine, Dissapore, for delight and to learn.
