C'e' Pasta... E Pasta!
Part fresh pasta shop and part kosher takeaway, C'è Pasta...e Pasta is a great, very local place to try Roman Jewish cooking, a key part of the city's food history. This spot serves dairy, fish, and vegetable dishes cafeteria-style at the edge of Trastevere, and is better than most of what you'll find in the old Jewish quarter. Carciofi alla giudia (fried artichokes) are served in season (winter and early spring) and while these are the most famous specialty of Roman Jews, C'è Pasta...e Pasta serves lesser-known classics, too, including aliciotti con indivia (anchovy and endive casserole) and concia (marinated fried zucchini). When the weather is nice, there's outdoor seating.
