We've come to the best and yummiest of points in this guide. It may be important, but let's keep it short. There are a lot of places to eat in Rome. And my best tip is a classic one, that can be applied to most cities around the world; wander off on the side streets, you'll get better food for a better price. And you'll run into more locals, too.
THE BEST PIZZA
Pizzería Ai Marmi, Viale Trastevere 53.
Un-impressive interiors, long cues, incredibly rude waiters - yet the most amazing pizza ever. My landlord Lorenzo took my friend and I here and it was an experience. Word on the street is that it's the best pizza in town. But if the line is a mile too long for your patience and your tummies are rumbling, don't worry. Pizzas all over Rome are great and you'll be fine sitting down at most places. Just that this place, well... it's something extra.
THE BEST GELATO
Gelateria del Teatro, Via dei Coronari 65.
Not many words needed - the best thing is just to go there and have a taste and you'll understand why I label this as the best. I recommend this place to literally everyone I know who are going to Rome, and to this day everyone have been blown away by their amazing gelato. Fun fact: you can sometimes spot them making the gelato, though the windows.
THE BEST PASTA
Mama Ristrotbistrot, Via Sforza Pallavicini 19.
No joke, you'll love their pasta. My fave is their amazing one with saffron and spinach. Again, I recommend this place to everyone, because yes; it's that good.
UNIQUE PLACE FOR COFFEE & COCKTAILS
Bar del Fico, Piazza del Fico, 34.
A café on Piazza del Fico with (you guessed it) - a fig tree standing a just outside. A more raw and genuine Roman bar - with a touch of hipster. Here you'll see a lot of locals and a few old men sitting outside, playing chess under the fig tree.
COFFEE WITH A VIEW
Vittorio Emanuele monument rooftop bar.
On top of the Vittorio Emanuele monument, there is a terrasse with a bar, where you can have coffee or wine with a spectacular view over the Foro Romano. Tourist trap? Yes. Still a great experience? Yes to that, too.
