Tours in Rome

If you’re coming to Rome in search of Italian food, think again. Here, it’s all about traditional cucina romana—something completely unique and special.

Roman cuisine is all about simple, fresh, seasonal ingredients, and making do with whatever is at hand. The working-class inhabitants of Testaccio were eating nose-to-tail out of necessity decades before it was cool, and Rome’s Jewish community made gastronomic magic happen with simple vegetables like artichokes and zucchini.

Pizza and pasta are plentiful, too, of course. But like all the best food in the Eternal City, they’re best when done in the local style. Forget everything you know about spaghetti Bolognese and Neapolitan pizza—it’s time to eat like a Roman! Carbonara and pizza al taglio await. Our Devour Rome food tours will show you this delicious side of local culture at the small, family-run businesses that do it best.
