Al Bric  

Cream of parmigiano with black truffles...

Exceptional ambience at this charming Campo area enoteca and restaurant. Bread and pasta are homemade and cheeses of every description rule the roost. The locale offers over 1,000 wine labels, with the staff eager to match wine to meals. Cuisine is Italian with a French twist. Nice for a romantic dinner. Don't go here expecting Rome trattoria fare. This is upscale and esoteric. To wit: tagliata of grilled ox with potatoes; swordfish stroganoff with fresh thyme and squid sauce; bucatini with black pepper and aged caciocavallo cheese. Closed Sunday night and most of August. — Cristina Polli

Antica Biblioteca Valle  

Acqua Negra a Valle become...

This chic restaurant was known as Acqua Negra until the end of 2007. The name may have changed but not the modern décor and stylishness that attracts a mixed crowd: suits and tourists alike. The name is based on a populare 1960s place, "Biblioteca della valle." There's both restaurant fare (try citrus-marinated fish carpaccio) and aperitivi platters, including sandwiches, cold pasta, couscous, and cold-cuts. Aperitivi are served daily 7:30-9:30 p.m. and run between €6 and €10. The restaurant serves until midnight. — Nicole Arriaga*

Antico Forno Roscioli  

Roscioli's delights: Bread, cheese and wine.

Campo de' Fiori, or just Campo to Rome’s conoscenti, offers a slew of cheerful restaurants and wine bars. As a lunch or light dinner spot, Roscioli gets applause for fresh bread (home baked) of every kind. Grab pizza bianca and cheese delights over the counter. Pasta and veggie prices depend on kilo weight. Delicious foccaccia and yeast-heavy Lariano bread with raisins, olives or nuts. Supplis (rice and potato croquettes) are also a must. You can take out. Wines by the hundreds. Opens at 7 a.m. The Roscioli restaurant is around the corner. — Cristina Polli

Camponsechi at Piazza Farnese.

Outdoor dining at Piazza Farnese (site of the French Embassy) delivers what is without a doubt one of most beautiful squares on the planet. The restaurant is not quite the view’s equal. Cuisine is heavy on seafood and, while generally tidy, it rarely surprises. Also, given how young, hip, and sexy Campo’ has become, this is something of an upscale relic. And yet, fork into white truffle pasta as you glance over the square can induce epiphany. Camponeschi has gradually escalated in price over its two decades of existence and is now out-of-range for the budget-conscious. Dinner only. Closed two weeks in August. — Judy Edelhoff

Ciccio Bomba  

Try the moscardini.

A lively, lovely, and loud Rome restaurant (crystal on the tables) that attracts a young crowd and sits on one of the city’s great shopping streets. Great place for a Rome food break. Try a delicate fritto misto of calamari or moscardini (little octopuses) when in season. Reasonable prices. — Suzanne Dunaway

Da Baffetto  

Delicious thin pizza...

This well-known pizza place near Piazza Navona is hard to get into and usually you have to go either early (7:30ish) or really late (10/10:30), however the delicious thin pizzas are worth the wait. Be prepared to be seated at the same table with strangers on a packed Saturday night. Tasty bruschette. — Suzanne Dunaway

Da Fiore Gino ai Funari  

Da Fiore's gnocchi ai porcini.

Great straightforward cooking at modest prices run by Gino and Patrizia. Patrizia, otherwise known as la mamma, does the cooking. Pasta con ceci made with ham can’t be missed, nor should the little rolled pork cutlets braised in white wine. Other no-frills picks: gnocchi ai porcini, spaghetti alla checca, and tonnarelli alla spigola. — Suzanne Dunaway

Da Tonino Al Governo Vecchio  

Just show up...

Nameless for years (a literal hole in a wall), this place now has a name and has been remodeled. Thank you, Tonino (really Antonio Bassetti). His place is among the last authentic trattorias left in Rome, crowded and noisy, with a mixture of locals and tourists. Modest portions and prices. Hearty pasta with broccoli, classic arrosto di vitello (roast veal with potatoes — or mushrooms). All pastas, including an excellent carbonara and amatriciana are priced at a mere €5. Rabbit, roast veal and a strapping beef stew runs €6. House red wine is cheap. Behind Chiesa Nuova. No credit cards or reservations, just show up. Corner of Vico d'Avila. — Judy Edelhoff

Grappolo d’Oro Zampanò  

Grappolo d’Oro Zampanò: High on wine.

Puréed bean soup with grilled shrimp was smoky velvet. Look for variations on Roman cuisine: roast pork with prunes and thyme deftly borrowed from northern cuisine with southern charm. You also get staples such as carbonara and cacio e pepe. We selected Umbrian wine, Arnaldo Caprai's Sagrantino. Expanded recently, try the room on the left for older charm, on the right for the modern look. A friendly place. Expect to pay €25-35 a head for dinner. — Judy Edelhoff

Il Cantuccio  

Political hangout.

A hangout for the political set, it is also open late (serves at midnight) for after-theater dining. Skip the “outdoor garden” on noisy Corso Rinascimento and head for the pink-walled interior with its photo gallery of celebs, some of whom one can actually identify. Roman cuisine. Try spaghetti cacio e pepe or risotto al vino rosso.Be careful, prices can take off on you, up to €50 a head. — Judy Edelhoff

Il Drappo  

Sardinian food at Il Drappo.

The fish baked in coarse salt is a winner, as is the suckling pig in this Sardinian restaurant. Also try the ravioli di ricotta spinaci e menta with the hint of mint providing the kick. Small and friendly, the Italian guide "Gambero Rosso" sings Il Drappo's praises (singling out the raw shrimp). — Judy Edelhoff

Il Pagliaccio  

Il Pagliaccio: A Michelin star.

Need to escape the traditional Italian cuisine for an evening but can’t bear to leave the Mediterranean? Chef Antony Genovese — French-born of Calabrian parents — tuned his cooking fork in Florence’s Enoteca Pinchiorri and earned his first Michelin star in Ravello, at the Hotel Palazzo Sasso. Now, he's brought one to Pagliaccio, which received Michelin honors in 2007 (and with the star, up went the prices). Genovese is divinely creative without resorting to silly eccentricities. To wit, red prawns with toasted peanuts in a light sauce of coconut and green tea; saddle of lamb with lemon and wild fennel; eggplant purée, and fried figs. Lovely presentations. — Judy Edelhoff

L'Angolo Divino  

Trendy and divine.

In a neighborhood (Campo de' Fiori)with countless nooks and wine bars, this little place has the advantage of quiet charm. You can eat cheese and meats in peace, sitting around shelves of priceless wine. It’s thankfully removed from the crowded madness of Campo central, which can grate on you. Great for a romantic chat, or to tell someone your troubles. Open daily until 2 a.m. — Cristina Polli

La Carbonara  

La Carbonara is only adequate.

Unfortunately an institution (this one founded in 1906) is sometimes institutional. Classic Roman trattoria food is hit and miss. If you must eat in the Campo, this will likely be adequate, but not much more. Also, given the location on the campo itself, sitting outside in summer means competing with an onslaught of activity as it gets later and livelier. — Judy Edelhoff

Le Maschere  

Top choice: baccalà.

Calabrian specialties — spicy fettuccine, for example — were a pleasant surprise in a place that from the outside seems to promise no better than kitsch. Good grilled meats, fried vegetables and baccalà. The singer was actually good (it's getting harder to find), specializing in Italian songs from the 1950s and 60s and traditional Roman ones, made for a surprisingly "authentic" experience. — Judy Edelhoff

Locanda Pasta e Ceci  

Local stracetti.

New owners and new name (it was know before Miró). The namesake dish may be the best pasta and chick peas in town. Pasta with shrimp is also delicious. Stracetti were average beef strips somewhat overwhelmed by their sauce. Good prices, friendly but service may be slow. Order as much or little as you want, as they don’t push the usual four or five course meal and will happily serve only a pasta dish if that’s all you want (and if it’s hearty pasta e ceci, that might be all you can handle). — Judy Edelhoff

Lucifer's trattoria.

This tiny trattoria is run by an engineer-turned-restaurateur who serves hearty fare with a particular leaning toward fondue. The homemade pasta is excellent (they also make their own sweets), the wine choices good, and prices exceedingly reasonable. A little-known delight. — Suzanne Dunaway

Fresh fish at Monserrato.

A dependable, neighborhood place with excellent fresh fish (try the rombo — turbot — for two with roast potatoes) and Roman dishes. The pasta is always excellent and the waiters are helpful. A good wine list helps, as the vino della casa falls a little short. — Suzanne Dunaway

Ristorante del Pallaro  

Modest, good fare at del Pallaro.

The formica and fluorescent setting inside may not appeal, so in warm weather try for a table outside at this restaurant built in the area where Pompey’s theater once stood. Owner Paola Fazi is fussy and friendly. You get a fixed-price (bargain) meal based on what the chef has prepared that day (antipasto, pasta, a roast perhaps, and wine). No menu, no choices. Just sit back and watch the food appear. Guaranteed to hear Roman dialect, if not from the customers, then from the staff. Basic Roman food at a very reasonable price. — Judy Edelhoff

Ristorante Gastronomia Roscioli  

Cheddar and mayo...

The restaurant part of the Roscioli duo (includes vineria and bakery, or Forno) is strong, for starters, on fresh fish, which comes in from Anzio and Civitavecchia. Otherwise the menu is pleasantly eclectic. Some say they serve the best carbonara in town, but let's just say it's excellent (as is cacio e pepe).

Few are the places in Rome where you can pick between amatricana and a Piedmont bacon-burger with chedder (Okay, here's what they call it: Hamburger di razza Fassona cotto alla piastra con bacon dorato e Cheddar Farmhouse, maionese espressa e salsa di Bloody Mary e Ketchup). Yes, mayo and Bloody Mary sauce. They also serve a mozzarella di Bufala burger with smoked ham (Prosciutto di Praga, not Parma!), cherry tomatoes, black pepper, oil and basil — that one, ladies and gents, is to die for.

The bread is drop-dead gorgeous, naturally, and the cured meats and salami deli-delicious. The cheeses — their specialty — go on forever; 13 cheese choices; seven mozzarella dishes. Let sommelier Antonio lead you astray with his array of alluring wines. He's always ready to prod you to try a new prosecco or his favorite Aglianico.

Roscioli's pace is a little hectic, maybe influenced by the more commercial traffic at the bakery and wine shop. Romantic isn’t the word. Expect to spend €45-65 a head. — Cristina Polli
