Fodor's Expert Review Da Francesco

$ Piazza Navona Italian
For good, hearty, Roman cuisine in an area filled with mediocre touristy restaurants, head to this authentic trattoria that's been on the scene since the late 1950s. Food-wise, stick to the classics: start off with a mixed salumi plate, then hit the primi—the gricia and the amatriciana are usually the standouts. Desserts are made fresh daily and the tiramisù is always a winner. As at most trattorie in Rome, the house wine is pretty good, but here you can also choose from a decent list of wines local and otherwise. In the warmer months, tables spill out on the popular Piazza del Fico, making this an especially wonderful spot in the evening.
