Traditional Roman cuisine

by illumina Online Now Mar 14, 2006 at 1:03 AM

I'll be travelling to Rome in a few days, staying near Termini, and wondered if anyone could recommend a reasonably priced restaurant? I've heard that roman cuisine traditionally uses offal, and my partner and I are interested in trying this if possible.

    true.
    roman cusine is made of the poorest ingredients. if you want to have an idea, the best area is testaccio (where the roman slaughter house was in the old days). in particular

    Perilli (a bit expensive)

    augustarello (really roman, no reservation, no credit cards)

    Hostaria Romana is a fantastic restaurant and is a 10-minute walk from Termini Station. It's located on Via Rasella the corner of Via del Boccaccio - amazing homemade food with only locals at the place. The food is delicious - try the veal cultlets, the artichoke and the cheese cake.
