Did you know that in Italy we can brag about a certain European achievement? About 10% of the Italian population, more than 6 million Italians choose to be vegetarians.. The motivations are for different reasons, thanks to the complicity of Mediterranean cooking, that permits captivating alternatives , putting Italy in first place, for lovers of a “green” table.
In the splendid and immense city of Rome and vegetarian restaurants, you can find many and for all different tastes. For a city used to numerous crowds, it knows very well how to indulge the most varied food requests: Vegan, vegetarians, but others who have food intolerance, for instance celiac disease. For this reason today, we will speak of some of the more appreciated and known restaurants in the capital and I assure you, we will not be speaking only of salads, but of true “elite” food.

Tonnarelli a Cacio e Pepe ( pasta with cheese and pepper) is to Rome, like pizza is to Naples, as a Prosecco is to Venice and as flat bread is to Romagna. So, coming to Rome without tasting a plate of this speciality is a crime! It’s as if you came to Rome and never saw St.Peter’s Square or tossed a coin in the Trevi Fountain.
We know that everyone, Romans, and those who come to study or for work, have their own special places for this dish. We at Gli Artisti can recommend 3 places, but we would love it if you would share with us your favorite place and maybe we could create a map of the best Tonnarelli in the city of Rome. What do you say, let’s start!

For those in Rome, who just can’t give up their English tea, we recommend Babington, in the heart of the eternal city, precisely at The Spanish Steps. Exactly under the most famous steps in Italy, on the right ride of the stairway,is where you will find Babington, a noted tea room in Rome, and not only for its prices.
Let’s specify, in fact, that this place is not for everyone, and it is not seen as a touristic hang out like other places. You go to Babington only to have good tea, to have brunch or have an aperitif. Consider the fact that there is nothing under 15,00 euro a plate.All can enter to have a look around, but few stay there to eat or have a spot of good tea.
So why is Babington so famous in Rome? a Roma? And above all, what do they serve that is so marvelous that it attracts tourists that want to eat well in a corner of England in the heart of Rome?

Among the most romantic cities in Italy, other than the beautiful Venice, or the charming Florence, we are a little ( but only a little) bit partial to mention the city of Rome.
Even with its easy going and always happy feeling ,Rome knows how to hide behind its ruins or in the glimpse of Trastevere, between the cobble stoned streets and the ivy on the red houses, leaving a splendid view.
The beautiful city of Rome, with its’ marvellous squares ( piazze), like The Spanish Steps with its beautiful staircases, or Piazza Navona with its’ fountains, gives a glimpse of its romantic seduction. But not only the squares, for when in Rome ,its essential walk and walk and walk, and to arrive at The Garden of Oranges, where couples go to exchange gifts and promises of love.
