Da Bolognese  


Tomkat at Da Bolognese.

This slightly overrated luxury spot has had many incarnations over the years, including a stint as a dolce vita hot spot where you could sit outside. No longer. It’s all indoors and all top-notch, if extremely pricey. Above all it’s about being seen and seeing. Damon, Clooney, Tom-Kat, Italian starlets, and so on. The food is more Bolognese than Roman: pasta in meat sauces (lasagne verde, tagliatelle alla Bolognese, hearty grills, veal chops, and more that vein (cotoletta alla Bolognese, a light cheese-glazed delight). Booking can be a problem: the place is often packed. Try getting there early for lunch (12:45 p.m.) and dinner (8 p.m.) If you want to eat abundantly, expect to pay at least €100 a head. Closes in August. — Cristina Polli

Da Cesare  


Chianina beef with rughetta.

This locale in Piazza Cavour serves up various appetizing fish dishes, including mixed fried fish and seafood platters. Great saltimbocca alla romana, which for the record are veal slices (usually three small ones) topped with prosciutto and fresh sage and sautéed in white wine. The service is professional and there's outdoor sidewalk seating. Not so much a don’t-miss place as one to keep in mind after shopping or after the movies in the Piazza Cavour area. In summer, closed on Sunday as well as Monday. — Judy Edelhoff

Da Felice  


Cacio e peppe Da Felice.

A Testaccio institution, this reputable trattoria reopened its doors after a 2005 makeover. Now, it's trendy and anonymous in the mold of many eateries in the global village. That’s sad, yes. But it's impossible to get a table here (you must know a Roman with connections), a sign that it's still serving up the Real McCoy: Try cacio e pepe or carbonara, followed by involtini or saltimbocca — all exemplary of simple Roman goodness. Vast wine list, tempting desserts. Leave the diet at home. — Kristine Crane

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 Francesco  


Small but hot

One night my table neighbor was horror film director Dario Argento, but that doesn’t mean your dining experience will be frightful. Bustling with locals and discovered by tourists, it still produces good Roman comfort food and pizza. Grab an outside table on the Piazza del Fico side to catch the passing action. (The bar in front stays open until the wee hours and is just the spot for a post-prandial grappa.) — Judy Edelhoff

Da Franco ar Vicoletto  


Inexpensive seafood.

A real neighborhood trattoria in one of Rome’s most up and coming neighborhoods, San Lorenzo. You can smell the fresh fish a block away. Franco and his Irish wife Laura always find the time to chat with you as they manage this bustling place. Serves a wide variety of fish — fried, baked, grilled — at absurdly low prices Creative first courses, including shellfish and beans! Lots of students, locals, and diners in the know. You can make a meal for under €20. — Kristine Crane

Da Maurizio e Natalino  


Natalino's chateaubriand.

Longstanding meat and fish place (family managed) that’s exceedingly simple but ranks solidly with the city’s best in terms of reliability. Go with foods from the grill (Natalino prepares the chateaubriand). Fish pastas are also first-rate. Back room is partly al fresco. — Cristina Polli

Da Olimpio  


No... not the "artichoker"...

Modest all-indoor trattoria and pizzeria next door to the teeming Il Messaggero newspaper building. This place gets loads of journalists for (long) lunch and tourists for dinner. Nothing special, but solid Roman food at affordable prices. Good veggies and fresh fish. Pleasant staff. Best to stay away from the pizza, which for whatever reason isn’t their strength — maybe because one is called "Pizza with thin artichoker." — David R. Deropolous

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

Da Venanzo  


Pizza a taglio.

A tiny take out restaurant that goes beyond the "just another pizza-by-the-slice" joint. Always jammed with locals and students, there’s pizza al taglio of course, but also great lasagna and roasted chicken with rosemary potatoes. If you want a snack, try their potato crochets and crispy supplí (breaded and fried rice cakes) — the best in the city, always piping hot and joyously gooey. — Lynda Albertson*

Da Vincenzo  


"Rhumbus," or rombo: turbot

If you happen to have time to kill before a train departure, or are simply looking for an upscale alternative to some of the creepy places near Termini, then this is the place for seafood, where Roman businessmen dine at lunch. Locals come to Da Vincenzo for dinner, and I like to bring visitors whose time is limited but want a good meal before hitting the rails. Delightful errors on the menu, including: "Tagliolini with dormouses" and "Rhombus fish with baked potatoes." And no, we won’t explain. — Judy Edelhoff

Dai 3 Amici  


Seafood fusilli among friends.

Simple neighborhood ristorante has good vegetable antipasti with some nice variations from the usual like cabbage. Alfio’s Mom weekly ships her homemade fusilli pasta from Calabria, good served with tomato, mozzarella, fresh basil and pepperoncino. Grilled fish or meat are staples in this Pantheon joint. — Judy Edelhoff

Del Sostegno  

Don’t miss the straccetti served at this sweet, tiny, family-run trattoria. Pastas change with the seasons and the cook doesn't get hung up on "creative," thank heaven. Better for lunch as it gets crowded for dinner. Near Piazza Capranica and the Pantheon. Usually about €25-30 a head. Website lists the menu. — Suzanne Dunaway

Doney  


Once upon a Fellini...

The upscale restaurant (managed by Paris-trained, Bergamasco-native chef James Foglieni) dishes up high-level "light" Mediterranean cuisine, including fresh pasta, vegetables and fish. Try the pumpkin ravioli pasta with shrimp sauce, pasta with asparagus and bottarga (dried fish eggs), tuna with potatoes crust, or millefeuille of Catalan lobster. Finish up with crème brûlée with berries. Monday-Saturday veggie buffet. Sunday brunch. Hip Club Doney for late-nighters. All the luxury can’t make up for the lost ambience of the 1950s and 60s, but that’s Rome’s fault, not Doney’s. Adjunct of the Westin Excelsior. — Cristina Polli

Dong Feng  


Peking Duck.

A place to enjoy a delightful meal in a pleasant setting near the Ottaviano Metro Stop and Via Andrea Doria. The dumplings are light and fresh, the shark fin soup strikes a nice balance between tart and briny, the anatra cantonese (duck) is fabulous. Open daily for lunch and dinner. — Matt Santaspirt

Due Ladroni  


Ask for Spaghetti ai moscardini.

Often swelled with tourists, I Due Ladroni’s crowded surroundings can sometimes be dour and off-putting. Still, the place offers excellent, expensive food (Roman all the way) once you're set up in one of the quiet rooms. Try filetto al pepe verde or the raw tartara, which they make in your presence. Octopus (moscardini) spaghetti is another favorite. Dining until after midnight. Expect to pay a minimum of €60 a head. — Matt Santaspirt

Duke's  


Trendy Duke's.

Self-styled West Coast bar and grill that shimmies. The crowd is fantastic to look at: models and hotties (male and female), soccer players, cigar-toting metrosexuals. But what keeps customers coming back is the unerringly good cuisine. For starters, "Angus" tartar is heavenly, so is the West Coast Sushi and Spring Salad (€8.50). The Argentine beef is nicely presented with grilled chicken slices. There's Timberland Quail and a "Zinafandel faux-filet." Be prepared to lay down the cash (Lobster Spaghetti runs you €16) — €50/60 a head is a low-end safe bet with wine and dessert. The bar is a hit and you can dine there if you wish. Oh, the "Duke" of the name is Duke Kahanamoku, the Hawaiian surfing and Olympic swimming champion who ruled the waves 100 years ago. Reservations recommended. — Cristina Polli

Enoteca Casa Bleve  


Casa Bleve is a lunch essential.

There are few more hospitable places for a Rome lunch than this one. The luxury (in an arcade-like, neo-classic setting) is muted because it’s still family-managed. Propietor Tina Bleve still oversees much of the cooking, including involtini with roasted peppers and cured beef. Extremely friendly and classy while never lapsing into the tiresome formalities of exaggerated luxury. Note that it's closed both Sunday and Monday. Lunch 12:30-3 p.m.; dinner 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., latest. — Cristina Polli

Fiaschetteria Marini  


Strudel to cap a lunch.

Founded in 1913, its down-to-earth style was once the rule and not the exception in Rome. With marble-topped tables (covered by paper table-cloths) and a cozy, wine cellar feeling (Tuscan wines line the walls), this Austrian-owned eatery serves up wholesome, inexpensive lunches daily. The menu includes typical Roman specialities and some Austrian staples such as goulash soup, wienerschnitzel (with turkey instead of veal), strudel and chocolate cake. Lunch only. — Kristine Crane

Freni e Frizioni  


Mojitos in style.

The space once housed a hole-in-the-wall auto mechanic, which accounts for ultra-narrow interior and name, which means "Breaks and clutch." Cocktails are a strong suit (great Mojitos!). Food (for lunch and late) is also more appetizing than in many similar night spots. Get used to standing because sitting isn’t happening late at night, except through pure dumb luck. Open 9 a.m.-2 a.m. Sunday brunch. — Kristine Crane
