Hostaria Da Giggetto: Rome's Classic Fried Artichoke Experience
The location—smack up against the ruins of the Portico d’Ottavia, crumbling columns that framed a temple complex built by Emperor Augustus in the first century B.C.—is an inspiring setting for indulging in carciofi as well as familiar Roman pastas and entrees. Call ahead to reserve an outside table.
