No matter how near or far you are from home, a recommendation for a good restaurant or bar is always nice to have.  EATS is a collection of places that I’ve enjoyed during my travels.

Li Rioni a Santiquattro

While many first time visitors to Rome vie to stay near popular spots like the Colosseum, it’s often hard to find good food in such heavily-touristed areas.  Yet just 3 blocks from the Colosseum we found a little gem in Li Rioni.  This classic neighborhood restaurant serves up Roman-style appetizers (think fried rice balls and zucchini flowers) and wood-fired pizzas that were both crispy and delicious.  It felt like a place locals would go (the table text to us was a family celebrating a birthday) and seems to be run by a father and son team (although I can’t confirm that).  You’ll find both outside and inside seating, the latter designed to look as if you’ve been dropped in the middle of a street scene with a brightly painted sky-blue ceiling and working lamp posts, creating a pleasant and casual environment that is matched with Li Rioni’s unrushed service.  My order has become somewhat formulaic – house wine, insalata mista and a pizza topped with some sort of vegetables or the traditional Margherita – which did not disappoint at Li Rioni.
