Seeking authentic Roman cuisine and Ambiance: Please advise

planetjanet | Sep 25, 2010 03:06 PM

Thanks to your great posts, and with the help of Katie Parla's blog, I've been able to put together a short(ish) list of places I'd like to try. Please help me to narrow them down!

My husband and I will be in Rome for 3.5 days (7 meals). We are looking for straightforward food--excellent fresh pastas--cacio e pepe, alla gricia, all' amatriciana, carbonara--fish and meats. We steer away from offal. We'd like to try a wine bar, one "night out" spot, a few trattorias, and pizza. We are staying near P. del Popolo but will travel for food.

Here's the list:

Antico Arco
Dal Bolognese

Da Gino (vicolo Rosini 4)
La Campana
Roma Sparita
La Mani in Pasta
Taverna dei Fora Imperiali
Lilli (via Tor di Nona)
Da Ugo (via dei Prefetti)
Al Moro
Armando al Pantheon
Il FIco

Casa Bleve

We'll be in Monti for lunch one day and would appreciate your suggestions. Will also go the Vatican Museums late Friday night and would like to know where we should go for Pizza afterwards (say around 10:30).

Many thanks for your help in paring down the list!
