Fodor's Expert Review Enoteca Corsi

$ Piazza Navona, Campo de' Fiori, and the Jewish Ghetto Italian

Very convenient for a good-value lunch in the centro storico, this trattoria is undeniably old-school—it's been renovated, but you wouldn't know it—and that's all part of the charm. It's packed at lunch with a mix of civil servants from the nearby government offices, construction workers, and in-the-know tourists, when a few specials—classic pastas, a delicious octopus salad, and some secondi (second course) like roast veal with peas—are offered. The prices and decor are come una volta (like once upon a time) when the shop sold, as the sign says, wine and oil. You can still get wine here by the liter, or choose from a good variety of fairly priced bottles. A longtime lunch-only spot, it's now also open on Tuesday through Friday evenings. The restaurant also runs cooking classes in and around Rome.
