Fodor's Expert Review La Fraschetta di Castel Sant'Angelo

$ Piazza Navona Italian
A fraschetta is the name given to one of the casual, boisterous countryside spots just outside of Rome, where the menu focuses on porchetta, the Italian version of roast pork. This is a city-styled version of the same, and the atmosphere is typical, with waiters yelling across the room and frequently breaking into song. Order porchetta (of course) and a cheese and charcuterie board, and follow with pasta carbonara or amatriciana. The tiramisù here, served in a jar, is worth saving room for. Don't bother asking for a wine list—the only choice is the daily house wine, served in a tumbler, as it would be at a true fraschetta.
