Maccheroni restaurant, located within a former butcher’s shop, is now one of Rome’s most popular local trattorias - a delightful traditional Italian gem that’s popular with politicians, locals and tourists alike for its simple, rustic and hearty Latium region cuisine. The team of chefs find inspiration in the finest seasonal produce available on any given day, where the menu changes frequently to feature typical trattoria dishes such as pasta all’amatriciana, beef tagliata, mozzarella di bufala with iced melon, and fresh figs with regional Parma ham. The original butcher shop fixtures and fittings still adorn the walls, the decor is simple and the atmosphere is vibrant. Positioned in the heart of Rome’s historic quarter near the Pantheon, the outside terrace is the pick of the dining spaces in summer. Bookings advised.
