Eating Out in Rome

restaurants in Rome by @onfoodandwine

Between airports and different European cities, it is difficult to get the time to shop for food, let alone cook. But then again traveling is the best. Do you ever wonder: how does a city taste? I know we all travel for the historical, artistic highlights, for the scenery, but I also travel for the food, the flavors, the smells, the tastes.Taking my first (!) trip to Rome I could not help but wonder what does Rome taste like? I love Italy and Italian food has a magic I can not describe. But Rome is Rome. My fears involved scooters and traffic, tourists and menus in 10 languages selling me ‘real Italian food’.

5 days of bliss followed. Not only did I get to celebrate my birthday in style (the main reason why we went to Rome), but I also got to discover culinary Rome. We opted for the hidden gems, for restaurants off the beaten track. We ate antipasti, we had risottos and pasta, fish and meat and a lot of … artichokes. It seems there is something about these Roman artichokes. Perfect artichokes alla Romana, which stay in my memory, roasted lamb with rosemary potatoes, pasta with truffles or panocottas to die for. The fried squash flowers? Such a wonderful discovery.

Of course I could go on and on, but I prefer to let you discover Rome on your own when you get the chance. Some of the restaurants we ate at and are worth a visit:

Via S. Francesco a Ripa 73

Piazza G.T. Arquati 114

    I too discovered a couple of years ago that Trastevere is a great neighborhood in Rome, and an excellent place to get decent, home-made, and affordable food. I’m glad that it is still the case, and that you discovered this recently. I hope you get to go back soon!

    Hello and thanks for reading this post!

    The issue of taxes has never been easy on mankind. As you know, the resource collected from the public through taxation is always greater than the amount which can be used by the government. The difference is called compliance cost, and includes for example the labor cost and other expenses incurred in complying with tax laws and rules. This has repercussions on different aspects of taxation, from personal income taxes to payroll taxes.

    One of the most interesting things related to taxes are the proportional, progressive, and regressive taxation systems. This is an area where a property tax attorney would tell you that a progressive tax is a tax imposed so that the tax rate increases as the amount to which the rate is applied increases. The opposite of a progressive tax is a regressive tax, where the tax rate decreases as the amount to which the rate is applied increases. In between is a proportional tax, where the tax rate is fixed as the amount to which the rate is applied increases. Progressive taxes reduce the tax incidence of people with smaller incomes, as they shift the incidence disproportionately to those with higher incomes. Regressive taxes reduce the tax incidence of people with higher incomes, as they shift the incidence disproportionately to those with smaller incomes.
