Restaurants in Lazio + Umbria

In the coastal town of Fregene, approximately 30 miles outside the center of Rome, this restaurant is a small family-owned establishment specializing in local seafood.

Frustrated with their city’s banal offerings, Rome’s food critics often head out of town. Their grail? This cult osteria, some 20 miles south of the city, presided over by the larger-than-life Anna Dente.

Pick up porchetta at this market stall.

Stop by this dairy and cheesemaker for perfect Parmesan.

Order dense, flourless chocolaty squares of torta barozzi, a singular family specialty from the 1800's hinting surprisingly of peanuts. Enjoy it at a table beneath a pretty covered walkway.

The black-truffle strangozzi pasta is a standout.

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