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.
Spaghetti all’aglio, olio e peperoncino – this was the most surprising dish of the evening. You wouldn’t guess from looking at the picture but this is the spiciest dish we have come across in Italy.
Chicken in white wine and hot pepper
Veal with ham and sage cooked with white wine
And lastly, Chocolate Mousse
