Testaccio is widely considered the best neighbourhood for Roman cuisine, and this eatery is its unrivalled star. With retro checkered floors, white tablecloths, and a tantalizing array of traditional dishes, the old-school restaurant makes a perfect leisurely weekend lunch with family or a romantic choice for a gourmet dinner. Cacio e pepe is Da Felice’s signature dish; this tangle of noodles, melted cheese and black pepper comes freshly tossed at the table for you.
We all know the saying “when in Rome, do as the Romans”, but to ‘do’ as the Romans, one must eat as the Romans do. That’s good news for visitors because the best restaurants in Rome are some of the best on the planet, not to mention some of the most romantic. The menus in Rome are a celebration of flavours and ingredients that invoke images of tradition, delicious, delicious images at that. There are so many things to do in Rome that trying to tick them all off is nigh on impossible task, but you might as well try. That’ll take plenty of sustenance, so get that appetite ready for something special.
