Food culture

If you love Italian food, you’re in the right place. Obviously you have to taste the Rigatoni carbonara, the most famous meal in Roma and for the first time, in its true, authentic form. After this gorgeous meal, take a dessert with a true Italian coffee. The Roman dessert is called maritozzi, a yeasted bun or some mini cannoli. When you feel thirsty, enjoy a real Gelato, we assure you that you will make you feel better.
For the aperitif, try the Saltimbocca alla Romana made with pounded veal, prosciutto, and sage, cooked with white wine and butter, this little thing just jumps in your mouth!
