Here are some photos from one of my favorite restaurants in Rome. It’s called Maccheroni, and it’s located near Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, on Piazza delle Coppelle 44.
You know you’ve found a good restaurant when you see that it’s popular among locals. This place is usually packed with Romans, which only enriches the dining experience.
The atmosphere there is genuinely Italian, with a charmingly (well…) obnoxious owner, shouting out welcomes and swearwords, flirting with all the ladies and juggling the plates. More importantly, the food is fantastic. They serve traditional homemade Italian dishes, for instance the best gnocchi I’ve ever had. They also have a wine selection that it’s impossible to go wrong with. Try this restaurant if you get the chance (order gnocchi!).
The obnoxious owner.
A cute waiter.
Panna cotta! Delicious.
And finally, some limoncello.
