Birreria Peroni Review

With its long wooden tables, hard-back booths, and free-flowing beer, this casual restaurant in a palazzo from the 1500s seems to belong more to the genre of Munich beer hall than popular Roman hangout. But let's remember that far to the north of Rome lies a part of Italy in which the people speak as much German as they do Italian, and the simple food seems more tedesco than italiano. It's from this place that Birreria Peroni draws its inspiration, and the goulash and the many sausage specialties—with sauerkraut and potatoes, of course—certainly provide a nice respite from pasta and tomato sauce. Top tip: this is one of the few places in the historic center where you can eat at very economic prices and fill up on good old-fashioned protein.

    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.
