This restaurant is not in the very heart of Rome but it's in the centre anyway. Good italian food.
Close to Termini station and Santa Maria Maggiore church.
Metro: Termini (lines A and B, closer) and Cavour (line B).
After arriving in Rome, we went looking for a bite to eat before we board our train to Florence. After walking around for a bit, we found this restaurant, "La Gallina Bianca" or "The White Chicken" in the corner and the menu looked pretty good (we didn't want to go into a restaurant with tourists in it)
When we arrived there was no one else in it. I suppose the restaurant's theme has something to do with cows because there were drawings of cows& chicken on the walls. The service was fast & friendly (a little too friendly if you ask me) and the menu had the standard items you would find in an Italian restaurant : pasta, pizza, grilled meats
Not long after that, the restaurant filled up with Italians which was a good sign. The meal was standard price and we paid like 20 euros per person (complete meal with wine, coffee & dessert)
This is primirally set up as a Pizzeria, but the Gnocci and pasta there are to die for as well
Favorite Dish: The Gnocci
