Campo de’ Fiori – Rome

The oldest market of Rome is held on the Piazza di Campo de’ Fiori (flower market). There is a daily market where you still can find flowers, but also much more. Spices, pasta, olive oil, … and cheese. The square is surrounded by a lot of bars and restaurants. But if you are hungry, skip the…

Forno Campo de’ Fiori – Rome

It’s hard to say, but we think we have found the 2 places in Rome with – even though very different styles – the best, most delicious, great tasting pizzas: Pizzarium and Forno Campo de’ Fiori. If you go to the corner of Campo de’ Fiori, you’ll find a small bakery. You cannot miss it, because…

Kosher Bistrot Caffè – Rome

A little bit further than Il Monde di Laura, in the same street, you’ll find Kosher Bistrot Caffè where you can grab a coffee in the morning, have lunch or enjoy some sweets from the bakery Il Monde di Laura. The cinnamon roll is gorgeous, and it will give you energy for the whole morning. Kosher Bistrot…

Freni e Frizioni – Rome

The terrace in front of the bar might be occupied, that does not withhold the romans to meet at Freni e Frizioni. The bar is located on a small square, which offers some ‘free seats’ in the open air. The weather is nice, the people too. Grab a drink and enjoy your long summer night….

Grano, Frutta e farina bakery – Rome

Grano, Frutta e farina was our little energybooster when discovering the shopping district. You can find there pizza but also sweets, desserts and bread. You can chose your yoghurt (light or normal), chose the fruits and grains to add, as well as toppings like chia seeds or nuts. Grano, Frutta e Farina Via della Croce 49/A…

Enoteca Cul de sac – Rome

It all comes together in the Enoteca Cul de sac. Hospitality, great wines and superb food. And most of all, for far less money than you expect.     Enoteca Cul de sac Piazza Pasquino 73 (Piazza Navona) 00186 Rome +39 668801094  

La Zanzara – Rome

We were on our way to find something to eat. Convinced that we wouldn’t find it there. Too close to the Vatican crowed that we just escaped after our visit. We passed by. And we returned. There was an Italian buzz,  a terrace with 2 free tables, a nice interior. A lot of Italians took…

Castroni – Rome

No, not at all! Castroni is a huge shop, a little bit hidden in one of the main streets of Rome. You can find anything to enable you to cook yourself a real Italian dish. Or just to take some olive oil, risotto, pasta, pesto or coffee home to give your family and friends a real…

Il mondo di Laura – Rome

Even though my cookies have a vast fan base, I wonder if I will be able to compete with these delicious cookies from Laura. They are made without butter or milk, but taste great. They even sell a ready-to-bake-mix of their most popular pastry. A must-try: the cinnamon rolls.  

Armando al Pantheon – Rome

The opposite of the tourist trap: excellent value for money, authentic food, great service and all that right in the center of historic Rome. This pretty much sums up Armando al Pantheon. This is the place to taste all the roman classics. We went for Spaghetti alla carbonara, Melanzane, Roman style artichokes, Saltimbocca alla Romana, etc….

Is Pizzarium the best Roman Pizza? – Rome

Many say the pizzas at Pizzarium from Gabriele Bonci are the best you can find. What do you think? We are still hesitating between this place and the more traditional pizzas at Forno Campo de’ Fiori . We went for both and we think you should too. Go to Forno for a taste of pure roman pizza tradition and…
