Top Tips
To make sure you have the lowdown on Rome, we’ve asked our panel
of experts including the best bloggers, locals and staff at Superbreak
for their best suggestions on making the most of your trip.
“Pizza in Rome has nothing to do with the kind you find in Naples just two
hours down the road. In Rome, pizza is thin - really thin. There is no lip
to the crust and if it’s done well it has a nice ‘char’ to it. There are many
exceptional places in Rome to experience the real thing just remember they
only light up the wood fired ovens at night so reserve your pizza outing for
dinner.”
Eating Italy Food Tours, www.eatingitalyfoodtours.com
“If you’re looking for a cheap and authentic meal, the tiny restaurant of Er
Buchetto is dedicated solely to spelling porchetta. Alessandro Fioravanti
is owner, operator, chef and waiter just like his father Franco before. His
porchetta is seasoned in a special mix of spices before being slow roasted
for four hours. The entire body of the pig sits in the restaurant window and
Alessandro simply carves pieces off for the customers serving it plain or in a
crusty roll. The salty, succulent slices of pig are a match made in heaven with
a glass of red wine and super cheap to boot.”.
Gourmet Chick, www.gourmet-chick.com
“If you’re out and about near the Roman Forum, you must visit Il Farmer’s
Market della Capitale, just across from it. This indoor market is a great place
to pick up fresh produce, meats, cheese, honey, bread, and olive oil from
the surrounding Lazio region. You can even make arrangements with certain
vendors to visit their farms.” Chantal Martineau, www.foodrepublic.com
