Restaurants in Italy

If you're missing a good mug of beer in Rome, head to Bir e Fud in Trastevere. The pub is nestled down a narrow cobbled street; the patio space gives way to an orange and terracotta vaulted barroom and dining room.

Well-crafted dishes like house-made gnocchi with baby calamari and spider crab.

Run by the same proprietors who own Casa Bleve—one of Rome’s best enotecas—this wine bar chain offers an impressive list of vintages (including many from the owners’ own Tuscan vineyard, Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi).

Chefs Omar Barsacchi and Gionata d’Alessi serve Tuscan-Maremman cuisine like ravioli stuffed with pappa al pomodoro.

A platter of sbrisolona sits on a counter inside the front door, a good start. The menu gives the age and maker of the prosciutto (28 months, Leporati), and culatello (20 months, Consorzio di Zibello), another excellent sign.

A lively restaurant in a brick cellar in the town center. Try the creamy scrambled eggs with grated truffles.
