Local eating

Alimentazione a km 0

Today, eating healthy has become a real lifestyle choice reflected in the genuineness of local eating and in the rediscovery of the excellence of the territory. Rome offers the opportunity to taste and buy different specialties that contain all the flavours of the past, in full respect of nature and agricultural tradition.

While Rome is justly renowned for its artistic and cultural itineraries, its food and wine itineraries, based on typical Roman dishes, consisting of simple ingredients, rich in aromas, colours and flavours, are not less important.

There are many valuable food products typical of the Roman and Lazio countryside that characterize the regional gastronomy and have obtained the distin- guishing trademarks of the European system quality: DOP, IGP, DOC and PAT.

DOP (Protected Origin Denomination): roman Pecorino cheese, Roman ricotta cheese, Roman artichoke from Lazio, Roman round hazelnut, Atina Cannellino Beans and Pontecorvo Peppers.
IGP (Protected Geographical Indication): roasted pork of Ariccia, Genzano bread, roman lamb, Amatriciano ham.
DOC (Denomination of Controlled Origin used in oenology) Cannellino of Frascati, Cesanese of : Olevano Romano, Velletri white and red, Moscato di Terracina, Circeo or Aprilia.
PAT (Traditional Food Products): Ravenna Cherries della Sabina, Nemi strawberries, Pizzutello grapes from Tivoli, Roman Broccoli, cacio fiore Cheese from Columella, Genuine Roman Caciotta cheese.

A range of different solutions is available (farmer's markets, supermarkets, restaurants and specialized shops, organic markets) for those interested in local food products and a healthy, organic, environmen- tally friendly and controlled local food diet.
