Ingredients and flavors

The cornerstone of Roman cooking is its reliance on quality ingredients. Extra-virgin olive oil is used both in cooking and as a finishing oil.

Tomato sauce, made with high-quality local ingredients, forms an important part of many dishes. It is an example of the simplicity and refinement of Italian cuisine. Pecorino cheese and black pepper are featured prominently, particularly in pasta dishes.

Traditional dishes

A typical Roman menu includes dishes that highlight simple yet high-quality ingredients.

Cacio e Pepe is a testament to the simplicity of Roman cooking, combining pasta with a sauce of Pecorino Romano and black pepper.

Pasta Carbonara is another Roman classic, made with eggs, Pecorino cheese, pancetta or guanciale, and plenty of black pepper.

Amatriciana originates from the town of Amatrice. This dish combines guanciale, tomato sauce, and Pecorino cheese.

Chicken Cacciatore is a "hunter-style" meal that includes chicken cooked in a rich tomato sauce with onions, herbs, and olives, often served as a heartier main course.

Saltimbocca , which literally means "jumps in the mouth," is a dish made of veal, prosciutto, and sage, cooked in wine and butter.

A typical Italian dinner

An Italian dinner, especially in Rome, is an event in itself. It typically starts with a variety of appetizers or small plates, known as "antipasti," which might include cured meats, cheeses, and deep-fried delights like supplì or fried artichokes.

The main course often features pasta or a hearty meat dish, followed by a second course of fish or meat. Desserts are a must, with options ranging from gelato to classic tiramisu, often accompanied by a dessert wine.
