Back to Rome! The hunt for quality food in a city chalk full of tourist traps begins again.
Crispy Roman Artichoke
Artichokes are a Roman thing, so as they say “when in Rome…” Deep fried and crispy. Can’t say it was anything wow. I’ve never seen the appeal of artichokes anyways.
Tonnarello homemade pasta with meatballs
Simple, homey, warm and comforting.
Cacio e Pepe
Never been a big fan of cheese and pepper pasta. This wasn’t too heavy, but I preferred the previous dish.
Reviews of Cantina e Cucina were pretty outstanding. I can’t stay our sampling of their food convinced me it deserves 5 stars. It was fine, but not something I’d wait around for. The place certainly is popular since it was fairly crowded even at the off lunch hour of 2-3pm.
