Romans take their food and wine seriously,and you will never be stuck for somewhere to enjoy a good meal in Rome.Aside from the ubiquitous takeaway pizza and tramezzini(sandwiches),snack culture is a more recent phenomenon–but it has been spurred on by the recession,and there are now places where you can grab a decent stand-up or carry-out meal for€10(£8.80).Note that Romans rarely turn up for dinner before 8pm.Best Rome restaurants recommended,Rome Guides:

It's not easy to find a good place to eat in Trastevere–so hats off to Cristina Bowerman's Michelin-starred culinary fiefdom,which strikes a blow for quality and research in an area dominated by tourist trattorias.As soon as you walk in,you see how far they are from all those Chianti-in-straw-flask clichés:this is a militantly modern reign of glass,steel,Corten and brick,where every dish is served on its own appropriate designer plate.If you're a first timer it's worth opting for one of the tasting menus,which showcase Bowerman's fancy but convincing Mediterranean fusion approach.On my last visit the mousse of basil-spiked mozzarella served with a nugget of panzanella romana bread salad and a slice of air-dried onion was a mouthful of summer-and that was just an off-menu amuse-bouche.n March 2017,Bowerman opened a hip new venue in the Testaccio district,Romeo&Giuiletta,with Roman deli king,Massimo Roscioli.Me,I prefer Glass-by miles.
