Ristorante Cleto
Via Del Buon Consiglio, 17
+39 06 6994 1507
Price: $$-$$$

Wonderful food and service. We return every time we visit Rome. This was the restaurant we wrote about in our first book, “Our Italian Journey,” where we enjoyed the ‘Feast of the Seven Fishes’ on Christmas Eve. Tell Pino we said hello!


Alle Carrette
Via Della Madonna Dei Monti, 95
+39 06 679 2770
Trip Advisor
Price: $

Excellent pizza. Not a place with a view as it is down an ally but worth it for the food.


Trattoria Pizzeria Vecchia Roma
Via Ferruccio, 12/C
+39 06 446 7143
Price: $$

Try their specials, Spaghetti alla Parmigana Flambe and the Bucatini al Amatriciana Flambe! Excellent food. Below street level so you will need to go down several steps.


Prosciutteria Trastevere – Cantina dei Papi
Via Della Scala, 71 | Trastevere
+39 06 6456 2839
Price: $

One of the best porchetta sandwiches were ever had AND their meat and cheese boards are out of this world! Love this place!


  1. When in Rome, be sure to try the restaurant called Piacere Molise! Wonderful food… be sure to try the Orecchiette Pietrabbondante and the tiramisu. Actually everything we had was among the best in our entire 3-week European vacation!
