Trattoria Da Tonino

bus: Corso Vittorio Emanuele II
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a cheaper place for a sit-down meal in central Rome. Unsigned Tonino’s is a wonderfully low-key place with yellowing pictures hanging on white walls, and is always packed. There’s no menu – the waiter will reel off the choices. You can’t really go wrong – everything’s pretty good – but if you want a recommendation, go for the pasta alla gricia (pasta with pecorino , black pepper and pancetta). It’s not a place to linger – more hungry bargain-hunters will need your table.
