Tram Tram

Tram Tram Review

The name refers to its proximity to the tram tracks, but could also describe its size, as it's narrow-narrow and often stuffed to the rafters-rafters (in warmer weather, happily, there's a "side car" of tables enclosed along the sidewalk). The cuisine is derived from cook's hometown region of Puglia. You'll find an emphasis on seafood and vegetables—maybe prawns with saffron-kissed sautéed vegetables—as well as pastas of very particular shapes. Try the homemade orecchiette, ear-shaped pasta, made here with clams and broccoli. Meats tend towards the traditional Roman offerings. No matter where you sit, you'll soon understand why Tram Tram is so snugly packed with satisfied Romans.
