Food Trekker only made a flying visit to Rome this summer but our number one recommendation is Armando al Pantheon. It will come as no surprise that this gorgeous little restaurant is a stones throw from the Pantheon (what gave it away?). It’s not a cheap meal, around €125 for two with wine, but you are guaranteed delicious pasta.
