And what about food? Roman cuisine is one of the most appreciated in the world, and a good cacio e pepe or amatriciana will take you on a dive into the most authentic Lazio cuisine. On the other hand, the Ghetto is the ideal place to taste authentic Jewish cuisine, while for the trendiest and youngest locals, but also for an economical trattoria, the districts of Pigneto and San Lorenzo or the new area between Garbatella and Ostiense offer everything, from the wine of the Castelli to the good Japanese sushi.
