Cesare looks like your average neighborhood trattoria—family-run, unremarkable decor, popular with families— with anything but average food. Start with polpette di bollito (fried shredded beef), crochette di melanzane (fried eggplant croquettes) and gnocchi fritti (fried gnocchi with pecorino sauce) followed by gricia, carbonara, or rigatoni with oxtail sauce. Space permitting, continue with fried lamb chops or roasted pig’s liver. The excellent wine list highlights traditional and natural producers from Italy, France, and Slovenia and bottles are incredibly affordable. This restaurant is in a more residential neighborhood away from the center of things, and makes for a nice Sunday lunch spot.
