Traveling is exhausting, and sometimes you have a cranky kid who can’t cope with a long meal in a restaurant. If you find yourself in this situation, stop by Pasta Chef. The food comes out fast, gets served on paper plates, and the amatriciana and carbonara are some of the best pasta you can find in Rome. They also have daily specials, like grilled asparagus topped with a fried egg and truffles, a good caesar salad if you need some greens, and small bottles of wine. You can eat at one of the high-top tables or take your meal to go back to wherever you’re staying.
