Believe it or not, in and around the centro storico being in the heart of it all doesn't always gaurantee you'll find a good restaurant. One exception though is Grappolo D'Oro Zampanò. Unlike the slew of tourist traps around the Campo de' Fiori area, this little restaurant is always bustling with tourists but locals especially love to come here. Grappolo D'Oro Zampanò is a classic little trattoria that underwent a major overhaul in 2003, expanding its restaurant location and menu as well. For starters, one should order the 'Antipasti della Casa' which includes: Burratina cheese, salami, a sort of ricotta and eggplant pudding,zucchini flowers. For first course dishes, this restaurant serves up some of the best Roman classics: Carbonara, Amatriciana and Cacio e Pepe. For second course dishes, don't miss out on the involtini (rolled and stuffed veal with radicchio and smoked scamorza cheese). BUS: 40, 46, 62.
- Italian: "Don't forget to order dessert! A house favorite aside from the Tiramisù is the chocolate cake drizzled with cream of bitter oranges on top."
- Best for Italian Because: Grappolo D'Oro Zampano is a great choice for the often tourist crowded tourist center.
