La Fraschetta di Castel Sant’Angelo – Roast pork

Before I went to this restaurant, I checked it out online and noticed that one person had called it a “strategic place for lunch”. Having now been there, I can attest that this review is absolutely correct – located right between the Vatican, Castel Sant’Angelo, Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori, La Fraschetta is a great place to stop by for a quick (but tasty) bite. 

It’s a traditional Roman trattoria, selling all the usual fare – including Carbonara, Amatriciana and Saltimbocca. But the thing I was really impressed with was the Porchetta starter. Porchetta is a traditional Italian roast pork dish flavoured with garlic and herbs – and here it’s absolutely perfect. The flavour is not too strong and the meat is melt-in-the-mouth. It’s served with focaccia bread wrapped in salty parma ham – the antipasto platter is huge, making it a perfect lunch for two people!

Even better, there’s seats outside with a full view of Castel Sant’Angelo – a real Roman experience.
