Discover the coolest places to eat in Rome from trattorias that have been in the same family for decades to restaurants, pizzerias, bars, cafes, gelatorias and delis. Author Peter Loewe also details the ongoing pizza wars in Rome, why Italians are not fatter and what might be hiding in a true Roman belly. Peter has also travelled far out into Rome's periphery, to find the most characteristic places in which the traditions of Roman food and family recipes live on. Organised into chapters for different types of eateries and food stores, this guide includes many great photos and interviews with local chefs. Given the many tourist traps that have multiplied in central Rome, a guide to the city's restaurants is more important than ever.
