Piatto Romano

Perfect For:Lunch

Everything in Rome comes with a history lesson, including a meal at Piatto Romano. The restaurant is located in Testaccio, a neighborhood where cucina Romana was basically invented, so when you’re looking for plenty of offal, some amatriciana and carbonara, or great daily specials like crispy artichokes, come to this trattoria for a long mid-week lunch. Dessert stays old school with things like tiramisu and ricotta visciole, a wild sour cherry tart, and you should finish up with a bitter shot of genziana, a gentian root liqueur made in the mountains of Abruzzo.

Da Cesare Al Casaletto

Cesare looks like an average neighborhood trattoria, but the food is far from it. Come for a low-key Sunday lunch.
