Roma Sparita

Since the restaurant Roma Sparita blazed onto the Rome dining scene over ten years ago, it has been a power centre that bolsters the meaning of tradition and innovation with its original dishes. Its pièce de résistance is the outdoor terrace that comes to life, especially during the summer. The menu packs multiple Roman-style dishes, from the bucatini all'amatriciana to the trippa alla Romana.


Rome's restaurants cater to all tastes. There are American steakhouses, Lebanese meze restaurants, Vietnamese eateries, and several haute cuisine establishments celebrated in the Michelin Guide. But when in Rome, do as the Romans do and choose the less extravagant restaurants and trattorias for a memorable and authentic dining experience. The Italian word for dinner, "cena", comes from the Latin convivium, which means "live together". Eating is a social get-together which consists of at least three courses — often even at lunchtime. The Romans do not eat dinner until nine in the evening. Rome is known for its Carbonara (made with egg, guanciale, hard cheese, and black pepper) and Amatriciana (made with guanciale, pecorino Romano and tomatoes).
