Da Cesare al Casaletto
Don't be silly and skip this spot because it's on Rome's outskirts.
Da Cesare, as it is affectionately known, has been feeding diners since the '50s, but only in recent years as Roman foodies head further and further outside the historic center on a quest for excellent food, has it has gained wider-reaching acclaim. Located at the end of the #8 tram line in the Casaletto, it has destination diners making the journey for its ridiculously addicting selection of fried antipasti (the gnocchetti and cones of crispy seafood are winners), traditional pastas including a top-notch cacio e pepe and Roman second courses like tripe, oxtail, lamb and salt cod. It's one of those spots where you can't really make a bad order. So heed our advice: Do not be silly and skip it just because you don't want to make the trek. The food is more than worth it and think of the metro as part of what makes this meal so memorable.
