Birreria Peroni Review

With its long wooden tables, hard-back booths, and free-flowing beer, this casual restaurant in a 16th-century palazzo might seem more like a Munich beer hall than a popular Roman hangout that's been around since 1906. But remember that in the far northern reaches of Italy, locals speak as much German as they do Italian, and that's where Birreria Peroni draws its inspiration. The goulash and the many sausage specialties certainly provide a respite from pasta and tomato sauce. The bonus is that this is one of the few places in the historic center of Rome where you can fill up on protein for very few euros.

    Birreria Peroni Review

    When we asked our host Carlo where to go for typical Roman cuisine he recommended L'Antiqua Birreria Peroni. Easy to reach via bus from Piazza Venezia, exit at Via del Corso (2 stops). This gem is hidden in a tiny side street away from tourists and frequented from what appeared to be mostly locals. Don't expect a fine dining or romantic atmosphere. This place is rustic, crowded and lively. They serve Peroni by the pitcher, we liked the light one best. The food ranges from typical Roman to German style sausage and delicious smoked pork. Start with suppli, a Roman appetizer. It's tomato rice deep fried in the shape of a ball with cheese in the middle. Sounds gross but it's good! The dolci also looked good. I had the apple strudel and it was one of the best I ever had. Prices are very reasonable and portions generous. Definitely recommended.
