    Tavernella di Luisa: Excellent small tavernella near St. Peter's

    by tvor Written Dec 2, 2012

    We were en route to do some shopping on Cola di Rienzo and were looking for somewhere for lunch. We saw this little taverna on the street and they had a set price lunch feature that looked ok so we went in. When you enter, you are in a narrow room with close set tables and there's another small room around the back. The cafe is unpretentious and rather plain but quite often those are the best kind. We sat at a table by the wall and though it was nearly empty when we arrived, it was completely full when we left, most of the clientele were locals, not tourists.

    The set price menu for lunch was only 10 euro and included a starter of bruschetta, an entre of Pizza and dessert with bottled water included. The bruscetta was nice and the pizza was wonderful. It was huge, with thin crust and fresh everything on it. I couldn't finish it. We had a choice of desserts. All very good value for the money.

    Favorite Dish: The pizza was great but could easily feed two people.

    Abruzzi: Abruzzi

    by myriam_c Updated Mar 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Family owned restaurant from more than 35 years with specialties from the Abruzzi area of Italy (where the owners originate from).

    TIP: go early (i.e. before 8 pm) or make a reservation. Fills up very quickly.

    Favorite Dish: Husband:
    Pasta tonarello (THE Roman specialty)
    Osso bucco

    Me:
    Rigatoni a la carbonara
    Scallopine di vitello al funghi porcini

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the most popular restaurants in Rome, and serves excellent food at reasonable prices. On the menu is a wide range of regional cuisine, including vitella tonnata con capperi and stracciatella. This restaurant is popular with locals and tourists, once you've been there, you'll keep comming back.
