For a cheap meal with wholesome regional cooking from the Marche this place is hard to beat. Utterly unpretentious, cheap and good it is not dissimilar to a Parisian corner bistro where the locals eat. The strattacella, a sort of scrambled egg in broth, was...More

Our second evening in Rome and this tiny restaurant didn't disappoint. Outside tables were full, but a very open layout, so 'inside' didn't feel too tucked away. Wait staff was the elder statesman of the family and he was so friendly. He was very proud...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
