Fodor's Expert Review Birreria Peroni
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 (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. Goulash and a number of sausage specialties provide a respite from pasta and tomato sauce. And the added 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.
