If you are looking to buy some of the Italian food specialties when visiting Rome, such as pasta in all shapes and colors, a great place is Piazza Campo de’Fiori with its day market.
One of the most popular places for a tourist to enjoy an Italian mean in Rome is Piazza Navona. It is large, long square built on the site of the Roman stadium so it also takes its shape. The square has three large fountains with statues. The middle of the square is taken up by the painting artists and both long sides are lined up with restaurants, also having tables in the open air.
Cantucci are typical Italian almond cookies (biscuits) made dry and hard by double baking. In the old times, bread double-baked was very useful for long storage, especially during travel or wars. The origin of the almond biscuits is placed in the city of Prato, in Tuscany. Italian cantucci make a great complement to coffee.
The simplest of pizzas, pizza Margherita or Margarita is just made with the fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and some basil but the secret of a good one is of course in the dough.
Roman style pizza is thin with crispy edges, can be soft in the middle.
