Bucatini all'Amatriciana

Roman cuisine is not sophistcated, it is normally based on simple and cheap ingredients, but it is very tasty.
Spaghetti alla carbonara
Here are some restaurants, that are also among my favourite ones, offering typical Roman cuisine at  reasonable price in pleasan places.
La Carbonara is located at Campo de' Fiori, one of the most lively Roman squares, facing the statue that is dedicated to Giordano Bruno, the great monk philosopher philosopher who was burned at the stake for heresy in this square.
Carciofi alla giudia
Giggetto al Portico d'Ottavia is located is the Jewish ghetto. It is curious to observe that it is the only restaurant in the area that is owned by a not Jew. The porch that, looking at the restaurant, is located just on the right was dedicated by emperor Augustus to his sister Octavia. In the past the porch was the border of the ghetto, the area where the Jews were obliged to stay at night. It is important to observe that Roman cuisine owes a lot to the Jewish culinary tradition. Carciofi alla giudia (artichockes Jewish style) are a typical example, as well as all the recipes based on lamb (agnello or abbacchio).

Abbacchio alla romana
Saltimbocca alla romana
Romolo e Remo restaurant has a name that does not create any type of confusione about the type of meal one can have there. It is located just outside of Porta Metronia, one of the gates of the Aurelian walls, few hundred meters away from the cathedral of Rome, the Basilica of St. John Lateran. Being out of the historical center, although just for a matter of meters, it is mostly popular with locals. That is normally a guarantee of having a good meal. It is very easy to reach from the Colosseum in about 15 minutes. Starting from there, walk along via Claudia - via della Navicella, cross the arches of Porta Metronia and, at the roundaubout, take via Pannonia. You will find the restaurant on your left.
