Rome 5 Traditional Dishes to Try in Rome

To fully experience Rome, you need to (at least) try pasta alla gricia (a pork-based pasta dish), carciofo alla giudia (a Jewish-style fried artichoke) and hearty meat and entrails recipes. Here's where to go.

You either love or hate traditional Roman cuisine. First courses are famous worldwide while meat courses are the most characteristic ones and least known. But where can you taste authentic, original recipes? Traditional but also contemporary restaurants cook classics like tonnarelli cacio e pepe, rigatoni alla amatriciana as well as artichokes, pajata and vignarola salad. To find them in the Capital, you will need a tour of the city’s neighbourhoods, discovering the true cuisine. Here are five dishes not to miss.

The Aqua Virgo ruins Thanks to the renovation of Rinascente Tritone, an ancient treasure was unearthed: The Aqua Virgo ruins from 19 BC. They can be visited freely and admired from the coffee bar.
Terrace with a view The rooftop terrace on the sixth floor of Rinascente Tritone allows visitors to appreciate a 180° panorama with St Peter’s Dome, the Basilica of Sant’Andrea delle Fratte, Borromini’s Bell Towers, Villa Borghese and the Quirinale Palace.
