Restaurants

Roman cuisine is defined by a unique set of ingredients, techniques, and dishes that set it apart from the food of all other Italian cities. While the traditional trattorias and osterias still dominate the dining options and serve a predictable (if delicious) litany of specialties such as cacio e pepe (pasta with pecorino Romano and black pepper), carbonara (pasta with egg, cured pork jowl or belly, pecorino, and black pepper), roasted lamb, and assorted offal, there are now an increasing number of alternatives, from fast-food riffs on local recipes to international flavors and neo-trattorias.
Though the past decade has seen some serious shifts in local dining habits, generally speaking, lunch is served from 12:30 until 3 p.m. (with a final seating around 2:15 p.m.) and dinner from 7:30 until 11 p.m. (with a final seating around 10:15 p.m.).
