Despite the proliferation of fast food and an increasing number of supermarkets supplied by agribusiness, Rome still boasts innumerable trattorias and restaurants, many family-owned, serving excellent traditional cooking. The Lazio countryside has rich soil and a benign climate. As a result, the fruits and vegetables are among the best in the world. Certainly a morning visit to the Campo de’ Fiori market, with its kaleidoscopic displays, provides ample confirmation. Rome is also close to the sea, so the fish is excellent.
