Rome Hounds - Travel and Leisure recommended the following restaurants in their latest issue as some of Europe's most "Irresistible" - the qualifier being that they hold something unique and particular to that city, in other words exude the essence of that city rather than globalized fusion type cuisine. We'll be traveling to Rome in November and would love the local's take on this list, best/favorite dishes from these places, and of course alternate recommendations if you disagree with a choice. Some seem rather pricey so if you have local favorites please share. Food quality is paramount for me, so I don't mind paying if it's worth it.
