Campo dei Fiori
Traditional Roman

A top salumeria and a specialty food-and-wine shop by day, this barrel-vaulted grotto-like space becomes one of the best and most atmospheric spots for traditional Roman cuisine at night. Order the classic pastas (carbonara, amatriciana, cacio e pepe) and the meatballs, plus the burrata (imported from southern Italy), and a salumi plate. Roscioli does weekly wine-and-food tastings, too, and don’t miss its sister bakery nearby for snacks, sweets, and pizza, plus prepared plates at lunch.
