Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Rome

Sciam
Kitsch touches and a relaxing vibe with colourful characters, especially from the Ottoman carpet shop next door.
Pizzeria la Montecarlo
Along with Da Baffetto around the corner, and Da Francesco in Piazza del Fico, this rustic pizzeria is the third in the great pizza triumvirate around Piazza Na
Mimì e Cocò
A friendly neighbourhood vibe permeates this cosy café, making it a welcome spot to stop for snack while vintage shopping on Via del Governo Vecchio.
Il Boccone
A relaxed, inexpensive and yummy lunch break in the heart of the city.
Forno la Renella
Forno La Renella offers a range of savoury delights to help soak up the booze.
Forno Campo de’ Fiori
Another of Rome's beloved old bakeries.
Forno Boccione
This tiny pastry shop in the heart of the Jewish Ghetto, run by a team of expert old ladies, is perhaps its most famous address, at least judging by the queues
Farinè la Pizza
Farinè la Pizza is a much-loved pizzeria in Rome’s San Lorenzo neighbourhood that serves authentic pizzas to devoted locals and in-the-know visitors.
Da Baffetto
Forget everything you know (or thought you knew) about pizza. For many this is the original pizza romana, served on metal dishes and so thin and tasty it melts in the mouth, without any stodgy aftermath.
Bocca di Dama
Bocca di Dama is a shop, a tea room and a laboratory in the heart of trendy San Lorenzo, where it is possible to buy sweets, order your own cake or have a relaxed Sunday brunch in shabby-chic surroundings.
Barnum Café
By day, Barnum Café is a cosy coffee shop in Rome’s Parione district, and by night it transforms into a bar serving some of the city’s best craft cocktails.
Bar à Book
A quirky and happening spot on the edge of the arty San Lorenzo area that comfortably marries the intellectual rigours of books and booze.
00100 Pizza
Rome's latest pizza buzz is all about this hole-in-the-wall kiosk in the popular neighbourhood of Testaccio.
