Pigneto Quarantuno

This local spot in Pigneto, a trendy and residential neighborhood about 20 minutes outside of the historic center, has wonderful seasonal pastas (in the summer, look for the pici that’s served with figs and guanciale). They also do Roman classics with a twist—the gricia is made with lombrichelli, a long pasta from Viterbo, and the pajata might be made with pacheri from Naples. Before or after dinner, take a walk through L’Isola, a lively pedestrian island that’s a fun place to stop for a drink.
