City Guide: Rome
Terre e Domus
A unique dining concept featuring ingredient-driven plates.
The official wine bar of the province of Rome is located right on top of the Imperial Forum, tucked next to the ancient Trajan’s Markets (Mercati e Foro di Traiano). Behind the somewhat unobtrusive entrance this all-day eatery is a super choice for a Roman breakfast pastry and cappuccino, a glass of wine, or a bite to eat in an area generally overrun with tourist traps. Everything is spot on, the wine is strictly local showcasing some of the lesser-known producers of the region, while the food is produced by the hard working staff–young hotel school grads and two prisoners from Rebibbia correctional facility who have been afforded the opportunity to be part of a reformatory program called Men at Work. The menu shines, using only local ingredients to create flavor-forward dishes such as pasta with broccoli and sausage and a classic Amatriciana–pasta with tomato, guanciale bacon and pecorino cheese–as well as boards of cheeses and cured meats which come from literally down the road and can be purchased on site.
