Rome For Food Lovers is the foodie’s guide to Rome for those looking for a contemporary and accessible cross-section of its coolest food spots. With over 120 recommendations for food, drink & beyond, discover the trattorias that have been in the same family for decades, the hole-in-the-wall pizzerias, and the best of the best gelaterias and delis, all across the food scene of Rome.
Each entry’s review gives you the location, contact details, ordering recommendations, and important information like the best time to eat there to avoid the rush. Breakout sections give you info on things like navigating types of Italian coffee, the best places to shop for food in Rome, and the new & exciting ‘volcanic’ wines coming out of Italy.
Chapters are organised by the different types of Italian food restaurants, from trattorias, pizzerias, gelaterias, delis and beyond, and give you the history behind the tradition, like the ongoing pizza wars in Rome, why Italians are not fatter and what might be hiding in a true Roman belly. Avoiding the many tourist traps that have multiplied in central Rome, the guide also takes you outside central Rome to the periphery, to find the most characteristic places in which the traditions of Roman food and family recipes live on. No matter what kind of Italian food you feel like, Rome For Food Lovers has you covered.
