Da Valentino

Trattoria in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

The 1930s sign outside says ‘Birra Peroni’ and its enchanting vintage interior feels little changed. Come to this mythical dining address for delicious bruschetta, grilled meats, the purest of hamburgers 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. No coffee.
