Locals’ Favourite Shops

  1. COIN

    This good-value department store is where real Romans shop, for back-to-school clothes, kitchen utensils, stationery, household appliances, and much, much more. There’s also a supermarket in the basement, which is great for buying a picnic.

    • Via Cola di Rienzo 173

  2. Franchi

    One of the best grocers in the city, extremely popular at lunchtime for its hot dishes and in the evening for its fried and baked calzone (stuffed pizza pockets). Locals start queueing up at 5pm.

    • Via Cola di Rienzo 204

  3. Castroni

    The gastronomic temple of Rome since 1932, this shop is piled high with packaged and prepared speciality foods from countries the world over, such as Japan, Greece, India, China and the Middle East.

    From kitchenware to furniture, Azi gives slick ideas for the home from top Italian designers.

    Slightly higher prices than most but better selection and more fashionable wares at this stock house for mostly women’s suits and skirts.

    Discount outlet for industrial design objects and various homewares.

Pubs, Cafés and Bars

  1. Ombre Rosse

  2. Chakra

    Located on a quiet street, this charming bar has a relaxed atmosphere and a pretty outdoor terrace that is popular in summer.

    • Via dell’Arco di San Calisto 17

  3. Bar Calisto

    This quiet neighbourhood bar is the antithesis of the trendy Trastevere scene. Locals come here to play cards, read papers and catch up on the day’s gossip. Welcoming atmosphere and drinks at reasonable prices.

    • Piazza San Calisto

  4. Caffè delle Arance

    Overpriced and indifferent, sullen service but a prime location smack on Trastevere’s public “living room”, Piazza Santa Maria. The spremuta (freshly squeezed orange juice) is made from a kilo of oranges.

    • Piazza S Maria in Trastevere 2

  5. Big Hilda Café

    A welcoming joint offering rock ‘n’ roll, cheap drinks and a range of sandwiches and salads.

    The semi-circular bar and restaurant is always packed with Trastevere regulars. The menu includes inventive dishes and excellent bar sandwiches.

    • Piazza Trilussa 34

  7. Enoteca Trastevere

    A new and positively thriving wine bar, with pleasingly dark wood interior and plenty of seating out front on the cobblestones. Light snacks and cocktails are served too.

    • Via della Lungaretta 86

  8. Roma Caput Mundi

    One of Rome’s most popular Irish pubs with a corner location that most locals pass through for a pint of Kilkenny or Harp during the evening.

    • Via Luciano Manara 64

  9. Borgo Antico

    A wood-filled, classically styled 16th-century tavern, with coffered ceilings, and offering more than 60 wines by the glass. Typical osteria dishes are on offer too.

    • Borgo Pio 21

  10. Mr Brown

    Very popular British-style bar with a vaguely old-fashioned sporting theme and a faithful English expat clientele.

    • Vicolo del Cinque 29
