Armando al Pantheon
Salita De' Crescenzi, 31, Rome; Tel.: 06-68803034 / 06-6793983
Only a few steps from the Pantheon, Armando has been serving excellent traditional Roman cuisine since 1961. Spaghetti alla gricia, alla matriciana, or the classic carbonara (an egg and bacon preparation) are always good choices here. Try a second course of fish or meat, or choose from their delicious selection of vegetarian dishes like polpette di farro (meatless "meatballs" made with spelt, a barley-like grain) in a truffle sauce. A "real" Roman trattoria, difficult to find in such a tourist dominated area of Rome. At this Select Italy favorite reservations are highly recommended.

Via Ruggero Leoncavallo, 16, Milan; Tel.: 02-26820430
A greenhouse converted into a snack bar, ice cream parlor, herbalist's shop, and nursery. The lush plants between the tables create the impression of dining in a garden. Offering vegetarian pizza, fresh juices and smoothies, this place gets very loud and crowded on weekends
