|In the quarter you will find many restaurants. Of course you will find
all the Italian ones that your heart desires, from cozy family run "trattorie"
and "pizzerie" to fine "ristoranti", with all the regional variants.
You can also find other cuisines (French, Chinese, Japanese, Indian etc.). And there are
also many "gelaterie" (ice cream cafes), bars, pastry shops, wineries for
connoisseurs, "torrefazione" (special bars where you can drink or even buy the
coffee specifically ground and toasted by the house). You really have the embarrassment of
richness. And if you feel like cooking at home, not only you will find normal supermarket
(in Via del Boschetto towards Via Nazionale, to the right: "Margherita"), fruit
shops, but also cozy, old-fashioned grocery stores in Via dei Serpenti.
If instead you're thinking of having pizza, we recommend "Chicco di Grano" (Wheat Grain), in Via degli Zingari 5-6- 7-8, corner with Via del Boschetto 115-114 (tel. 0647825033). They prepare nearly 30 different types of Pizza with wooden fire oven, according to the Neapolitan tradition, not the Roman. We recommend Neapolitan pizza as opposed to the Roman (it is quite hard to find the former in Rome, and you will generally have to surrender...when in Rome...). In the Neapolitan pizza the dough is let aside to raise, the pizza is thicker and more dressed. "Chicco di Grano" also prepares 40 different types of Bruschetta, a Roman specialty of grilled bread dipped in olive oil and garlic (with many variants). Also this restaurant offers a 10% discount to Roman Homes customers. Again, you will need to have the rental contract with you, or our business card.
