Gelato Genius

Il Gelato di Claudio Torce
Viale Aventino, 59, Rome
There’s gelato…and then there’s Claudio Torce’s gelato. Proprietor of one of the eternal city’s leading artisan gelateries, Torce has become a sensation among Romans by offering natural, ingredient-driven gelatos in a huge assortment of inventive flavors, like celery and habanero and brie with mixed berries. Arrive at Il Gelato di Claudio Torce hungry and ready to experiment–or play it safe and stick to the classics, like hazelnut, chocolate, and zabaione, all of which are executed impeccably, too.

Ghetto Gem

Sora Margherita
300 Piazza delle Cinque Scole, Rome
Sora Margherita can be tricky to track down, but locate the unmarked door of this charming hole-in-the-wall off a small square in Rome’s old Jewish ghetto and you’ll be warmly greeted with a handwritten menu on brown butcher paper and treated to a classic trattoria meal of the highest order. The fried artichokes–shatteringly crisp and as big as a peony blossom–are the main attraction here, but even the simplest homemade pasta dishes–like an elemental cacio e pepe and lusty gnocchi al ragu–will leave you sighing molto buono.
