Food in Rome
What do you associate the word "Italy"? Just do not be fooled, write the first thing that comes to your mind.
I have a meal ... Although I am not in any way belittle its eternal cultural values. But it so happened that for me Italy - a synonym for the highest quality products ... prosciutto, mortadella, mozzarella, Buratti ... pizza, pasta, lasagna ... coffee ... You can enumerate a long time, but it is better to go and try everything yourself .
I'll start with the place where it was not the best in taste of food, but the atmosphere - excellent!
No, the food here is delicious, too ... It was just a place where it was tasty, it will be second on my list.
About this restaurant, I have never read, just walking through the streets of Rome, we stumbled upon it ... And I immediately said, "I want to dine here!" And I have not lost ... The tourists here, by the way, was not. But the interior ... to admire every detail.
Restaurant Cantina e Cucina
Address: Via del Governo Vecchio 87, 00186 Rome, Italy
By the way, one of the places where you can eat almost always because the kitchen they open from 10 am to 1.30 am. The restaurant opens at 8, but I think that at this time you will be offered only coffee.
By the way, it turned out, the 60 th place out of more than 5,000 restaurants in Rome.
Ordered we typically Roman pasta.
In the end, we have brought free brandy, to improve digestion. Nicely.
But the place where I was ... it tastes best:
Location: Not far from the Vatican. Mascherino, 60
Note: a special work schedule. Mon, Wed-Sun 12.30-14.30, 19.30-22.30. BUT! So write everywhere for some reason. I was on Monday from 12.30 and somewhere to two in the area, the restaurant never opened. And we were there all the same on Wednesday. This restaurant can be accurately called a family. Manages the elderly couple, a bit loud and rude ... even willing to quarrel in front of you, but they can be forgiven for it, just touching their food.
It works here just three people: mom, dad, daughter. Dad handed to us, my mother cooked and stared at us while we ate. we have not met the daughter.
We went ... I have not had time to take a menu, say: "Lasagna!" I really wanted her to Rome to try ... and it was our last meal. What I was told: "No, cannelloni take it!" Well then you argue? Have taken. And no mistake.
Interior - crazy! Riot of colors and all kinds of utensils, artificial flowers, and even just trash. But do not go for the interior here. Although the interior, too, it gives the restaurant's atmosphere.
Another interesting place:
Address: Via Frattina, 94. Open: Mon-Sat 11.00-23.00.
Especially the place so that all products are exclusively of local origin. The restaurant was opened as a social project of the Italian authorities, who wanted to support a large number of farmers. And the authorities have not paid off, the place is very popular.
Here is the cheese plate a little bit disappointed.
A pasta I liked much. This anchovy.
... and bacon
For the best coffee ... Only
Address: Piazza di Sant'Eustachio, 82. Works from 8 am to 1 am.
That's how I do not like coffee, espresso here I even saw that at all incredible! And I liked it.
However, not one I think so. This cafe opened in 1938. Received an incredible amount of awards that can be seen on the sticker on the front door ... Not every place even Rome can boast such.
By the way, in Italy many kinds of coffee, but nevertheless, when the Italian says the word "coffee", it did not ask specifically about the form, and just bring the espresso, which the Italians love with and drink 7-8 cups a day.
And yes, do not forget that in Italy there is a law that the espresso drunk at the bar, should not cost more than one euro. Of course, I think everyone knows about it.
For fans of coffee drinks on the note.
Types of coffee:
- Espresso - half a sip of caffeine with a light foam. Coffee, drink, for 3 minutes.
- Ristretto - the same amount of caffeine, but only in one sip
- Makkyato - espresso with a couple of drops of milk
- Latte makkyato - milk with a couple of drops of coffee
- Lungo - coffee, in which the liquid is slightly larger than an espresso
- US - very weak drink
- Coffee Freddie - for hot days
- Corrette - espresso with grappa drop of brandy, etc...
- Cappuccino - coffee with frothed milk and a pinch of cocoa
In the cafe a lot of tasty souvenirs
Not enough coffee? For the second portion of the head to the cafe with a history of:
Address: Via Condotti, 86
Cafe was founded in 1760. Celebrities and close to us, Russian, by the fact that there is often visited Gogol. It is known that Gogol was madly in love with Rome. Here, the history, he wrote "Dead Souls". By the way, there weighs on the wall is one of his notes on Rome. I will not write her text, just go out there and find it yourself.
By the way, expensive cafes. Cappuccino here costs about 6 euros at the table, if I remember correctly. But at the bar only 1, 5 euros.
Gogol place now occupies a freelance writer who dreams of glory
For those who loves mozzarella, there is a private paradise
Address: Via Dei Prefetti, 26a. Mon-Sun 12.00-23.00
In Rome, there is a second restaurant Obika - Piazza Campo dei Fiori - angolo Via dei Baullari
In this restaurant, everything revolves around the mozzarella. We ordered a tasting of two kinds, one of which is more sustained. But to be honest, we were not very impressed. Mozzarella and we have the same taste. By mozzarella ordered a meat dish.
The place to which I do not advise you to go about it though, and it is written in the authoritative "Poster". This place:
La Tana De'Noantri
Address: Via della Pagilia 1-3 Mon, Wed - Sun from 12.00 - 15.00 19 - 23.00
We wrote that there is sooo delicious pizza, zucchini tempura and tiramisu. Well, we were led, and ordered just that. Pizza was sooo mediocre
zucchini flowers in batter, by the way, is fine ... But for them it is not necessary to go here. Artichokes - not ours
Tiramisu also did ... In appearance, however, be seen ...
Yes, and the interior is not particularly. I do not understand how this place got in the guide. At that time, like many restaurants in queues to get on the evening opening, then there was not a single person all the time, we were having dinner.
But it was tasty at the railway / Termini train station in Moka dining. For 10 euros, we ate very tasty ... Even though the pork was a little harsh, but it is incredibly delicious taste scored bukattini
Now I will talk about the most famous Rome's grocery market, a gastronomic paradise - Eataly store, which is not yet known by tourists, but that everyone must visit ... and a few other tasty stores, pizzerias and the best ice cream! Ahh ... I almost forgot, I also talk about the Sicilian sweets shop
We love markets ... They often reflect the face of the city ... in a concentrated manner.
The most famous food market in Rome is located in the Campo dei Fiori square. The market is open from 6 am to 14.00 of the day, except Sunday. To say that it was saaaaaaaamy - saaaaaaamy market of all that we visited, I can not. Nevertheless, there is also great.
Do not forget! Walking through the market ... we look at the products, but also on the people too
Here can be found a few hundred types of pasta, macaroni
And of course, all kinds of pasta sauces and seasonings.
And even 30 kinds of dried tomatoes
A zucchini flowers, it turns out, is not so cheap fun
At the end of the market you can buy flowers.
And then there is a bakery, which is not just lazy writing in posts about Rome
Let's move on to another site, be sure to visit in Rome, of course, if you are interested in food.
When we went there, we immediately realized that we wanted to live there!
This shop is called "EATALY". It is located far from the center, but it's worth it, honestly! Believe me, as a discerning consumer :) There is EVERYTHING! Store giant, 4 floors. The floors are divided into subjects ... oh, the meat and cheese floor ... Cheeses and meats, for example, are divided into departments - regions. You want meat from Lazio, want from Lombardy ... and so on. D. Also, there more than 20 cafes, which are divided on the floors. In general, clearly, we must go.
This is the best view from the escalator
It goes without saying that there is all Italian wine?
Then right away, and a wine bar.
Pastes .... about 1000 species, I think
Immediately and hand-made semi-finished products. A lot, all very delicious. This is only a fifth of the showcases
Sooo many kinds of olive oil, and the other - any oil
Cafe "Mozzarella". In the background stands with different cheeses.
Cheese, cheese, cheese, meat, sausage, cheese ... mnogooo!
Fruits and Vegetables.
The incredible cookbooks.
And many, many, mnogooo another!
And even then sell cool stuff. These boxes - it gastroputeshestviya in different regions of Italy
In general, unequivocally recommend.
BUT! One frustration we had here. This food in this cafe. We went to La Carne, because much like meat. There's a small selection from the menu, we ordered two main dishes and it was very tasteless, expensive and little
The next shop, which I want to tell you - the Sicilian sweets shop. We stumbled on it by accident, but it is very tasty. I wanted to try EVERYTHING!
But we decided on cannoli with pistachio. By the way, cannoli - it's the mafia sweetness! It is these rolls are eaten in the movie "The Godfather"
A shop called - i dolci di Nonna Vincenza.
Another shop - Roscioli. By the way, there is a shop and a bakery. They are close to each other. Via Dei Giubbonari 21.
Delicious shop, but after Eataly is not so interesting, and more expensive, I thought. Just answer the question, which may - not, we were not Kastron
Some insanely expensive fresh tomato (29-33 euros per bottle). Who knows why is it so expensive?
A wide range of wines.
And here is the entrance to the bakery Roscioli:
a quick bite
Soooo, and now the sweet.
About Ice Cream! To Italy I could only have vanilla ice cream, and that is rare ... I did not like. And then it hit me!
What I ate before, it was a poor excuse for an ice cream. In Italy - is another matter, it is delicious!
The most delicious was Venchi. This network is spread out all over Rome, there are even at the airport.
By the way. In places where it is written Gelato Artigianale - it means that the ice cream is made on the spot rather than in a factory. Other delicious ice cream we ate at the Pantheon. Cafe for some reason it was no signboard
Here! Pro shops all. By the way, if you do not like shopping ... even gastronomic. From the food on the streets of Italy, you still can not escape. It's there on every corner
