Even though I go out a lot, and keep up on all the new restaurants in Rome, I have my favorites. In fact, it’s often hard explaining to my editors at Bon Appetit or Food & Wine that when it comes to the restaurant scene in Rome ‘new’, ‘hip’, and ‘hot’ are not words that usually apply.
That’s why i was so thrilled that my editor at Epicurious let me write up a piece on old fashioned restaurants in Rome. These are all places that are dear to my heart and that I’ve been going to since I was about 12 years old and that my family and I - all three generations of us - still love.
