When in Rome, there is one thing you won’t have to worry about: being able to find a nice place to eat. From family run trattorias and pizzerias, to fancier, hip restaurants, Rome knows how to quench your hunger and satisfy her visitors with her savoury specialties. Roman food is a popular, yet simple one. It is not sophisticated or elaborate, but generous, rich in flavours and character, and full of many mouth-watering recipes. The typical Roman food has its roots in the past and reflects the old traditions in most of its offerings. It is based on fresh vegetables (the king is definitely the artichoke, whether deep fried, simmered in olive oil with garlic and mint, or “alla giudia”), not expensive cuts of meats (the so called “quinto quarto,” meaning mainly innards, cooked with herbs and hot chilli pepper). It also consists of deep fried, tasty appetizers (such as salted cod and filled zucchini blossoms) and sharp “pecorino cheese” (made from sheep’s milk from the nearby countryside), a very important ingredient in many recipes. Not to mention the pasta, of course, a staple for every Italian, and therefore every Roman. From “carbonara” to spaghetti “ajo e ojo” (simple but so effective, with its fiery mix of olive oil, garlic and chili pepper), from rigatoni “con pajata” to a hearty, fragrant soup such as “pasta e ceci.” There are few Roman desserts, and they are mainly connected to festivities (Carnival, Eastern or Christmas). They are definitely worth a try, however, especially the ricotta cake, which is made with fresh ricotta cheese mixed with sugar, lemon, vanilla, candied fruits, pine nuts and raisins.
