So you thought Caesar salad was a Roman dish . . . Not even close! Roman food is very diverse. It's fresh and earthy with meat, seafood and vegetables playing an important role. That's because Rome is located in the Lazio region of Italy which is known for its rich, fertile hills and bordered to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea. Consequently, pizzas, pastas and grilled entrees are revered for their peak of flavor.
Tre Soldi's Roman pizza is a continent away from Chicago-style pizza. It's hand tossed, with a thin, crisp crust and tender edges. They're topped with various Italian cheeses, homemade sausage, fresh tomato sauce, herbs, anchovies, salumi, cured meats, artichokes and just about anything but pepperoni.
The lusty, rich pastas of Rome are famous. You'll find Romans arguing over who makes the best Carbonara, Cacio E Pepe or Bucatini all'Amatriciana. When speaking of Roman food you can't leave out the famous Jewish influence, in particular Carciofi Alla Giudea, a twice-fried artichoke served with a mint olive oil dipping sauce.
Buon Appetito (Roman style)!
