Albergo Ristorante Adriano
via di Villa Adriana, 194, Tivoli; Tel.: 0774-382235
On a day trip from Rome to see Hadrian's celebrated villa at Tivoli, a convenient place for lunch is this hotel restaurant located only a few steps from the ticket office. Here you can dine on a shady terrace under plane trees or in a high-ceilinged dining room with terra-cotta walls and white Corinthian pilasters. The menu includes homemade pastas, roast lamb, saltimbocca (veal cooked with ham), deviled chicken, fresh salads and home style desserts. Reservations recommended; to get there from the center of Tivoli, take bus number 2 or 4.

Aristocampo Panini
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Piazza della Scala, 53, Rome; Tel.: 06-58335530
Dedicated to slow and authentic Italian food, as is its hipster sister restaurant around the corner in Via della Lungaretta, this quick-stop sandwich shop is a favorite of students who come here for filling sandwiches made with fresh ingredients. Kind of like an Italian-style Subway, you can either choose one of the sandwiches on the menu, or combine ingredients to create your own customized panino. They also serve wine and beer to sip on as you enjoy your lunch outside on the patio.
