Ristorante Strega: Great pasta and cappuccino
We had slept two hours before the flight to Rome, so once there we decided to skip all the sites we already had seen, and instead focus on a long italian lunch. That turned out to be a good decision. Just around the corner from our hotel we found Ristorante Strega, a place where all the locals had their lunch. We got a table outside on the terrace, and soon had menus in both english and italian in our hands.
I went for a classic, a pizza 4 formaggi, while my wife went for a ravioli with spinach and cheese, in butter sauce. And before that of course an antipasti, consisting of two bruschetta with lots of tomatoes. It turned out to be a really long lunch, finished by cappuccino.
Service was great, perfect with menus in two different languages. Food was fantastic, the week before we had been in France, and it was amazing to finally be able to eat some real food again. Food that actually tasted something. All ingredients tasted fresh and perfectly made.

Risorante Strega: Lunchtime Treat
We had an excellent lunch here.
I went to meet some friends for a pre Champions League Final lunch in May 2009. Steve had been to the place before and so recommended it. We met at 13:00 and so lunch was in full swing, plenty of locals.
Fortunately they had a table for 5 spare. Service was a bit weird as they brought out the pizza before the ravioli and then the linguine seemed to take a bit of prompting.
The restaurant served really good food at reasonable price, much better than some of the more touristy places that you might come across.
Favorite Dish: I went for the De Luxe ”Mix of Salumi", Italian-Style Cured or Preserved Meats, which I shared followed by the really gorgeous Green Peppered Fillet of Beef with Steamed Spinach
Other meals were
Ravioli Filled with Ricotta Cheese and Spinach, Butter and Sage
Linguine with Clams (this looked great)
Sea Bass crust of Potatoes - (this looked great)
