Da Valentino

Trattoria in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

A 1930s sign on the front of this neighbourhood trattoria says ‘Birra Peroni’ and the evocative interior feels little changed from this time. Locals tend to order bruschetta, grilled meats and scamorza, an Italian cheese that's grilled and melted atop myriad different ingredients: tomato and rocket, artichokes, lardo di colonnata (pork fat) slices from Tuscany and porcini mushrooms. Book ahead.
