Head to Bar Roma for great rustic Italian food and to feel like you’re in a page of “Charming Italian Countryside Home” magazine. The space has a lot of wood and distressed furniture, and bags of flour lying around to remind you they make all their pastas in house. They have an entire section of their menu dedicated to polpette - the “balls,” and you’ll find a variety of meatballs including spicy pork belly and veal. But we like coming here for their pastas - the cacio e pepe is fantastic, and you can’t go wrong ordering whatever pasta is the special for the day.
