Rome is such an amazing city. Every time I visit I love it more and more. Besides the obvious tourist attractions in Rome I love just wandering around small side streets, going in little boutiques, and of course eating at wonderful restaurants!
First up are my favorite pizza places. Da Bafetto is a famous pizza restaurant (pictured above) at Via Governo Vecchio, 114. It is only open for dinner and has long waits so get there early! Another great pizza place is La Montecarlo at Vicolo Savelli, 13. There are tables outside and it is really inexpensive- the perfect place to grab a quick lunch! And finally Pizzeria dar Poeta at Vicolo del Bologna, 45 in Trastevere. This is an amazing restaurant down a tiny street. There are a ton of great pizzas to pick from. We loved the pizza with buffalo mozzarella. They have amazing bruschettas as well.
Ottobre 1980 is also on Via Governo Vecchio. Cute little place with great food!
Another place we loved is Vinoteca Novecento at Piazza delle Coppelle, 47. We sat outside and got a plate of meats and cheeses. Yum!
And finally our favorite pasta restaurant in Rome. Le Mani in Pasta is a wonderful little place at Via Dei Genovesi, 37 in Trastevere. Amazing food, fun atmosphere and the prices were incredibly reasonable.
For gelato my pick is San Crispino (pictured above) at
