Fodor's Expert Review L'Archeologia

$$ Via Appia Antica Italian

In this farmhouse just beyond the catacombs, founded around 1804, you can dine indoors beside the fireplace in cool weather or in the garden under age-old vines in summer. Specialties include spaghetti aglio (with garlic and olive oil), olio e pepperoncini (spaghetti with garlic, olive oil, and pepper) with raw shrimp, fillet of beef with onions, potatoes, and hazelnut sauce, and fresh seafood. The atmosphere is friendly and intimate, but the vast property can also accommodate large parties.
