Ruma Bottega & Cucina Agricola

Down a small cobblestone-lined alley near Piazza Navona is Ruma, a moody bar that serves natural wine alongside small plates featuring produce and buffalo dairy directly from the owners’ farm. If you’re only here for one thing, the cheese is straight-up phenomenal—from stracchino spooned on crusty bread to burrata that melts like your friend who got a little too emotional at the Sistine Chapel. 

Other hits include buffalo meatloaf with a savory gravy and anything involving fresh vegetables. Sit at one of the tiny wooden tables among the orange glow—of both the lighting and your skin contact wine—and end with a large scoop of velvety gelato. (Buffalo-based, of course.)
