Best gnocchi in Rome?

My husband and I will be in Rome on a Thursday in October. Can anyone recommend the best restaurant(s) to try gnocchi for a Thursday lunch?

  1. I recommend Matricianella (near the Senate). Their gnocchi were delicious. Also loved the gnocchi at Ditirambo in Campo de Fiori.

    1. In my opinion, you cannot beat La Piazzetta on Thursdays, the traditional gnocchi day in Rome.

      1. We lived in Trastevere for 2 months a few years ago and went to Checco almost every Thursday for's their website

        I've posted a pic of one of our Thursday lunches - we asked for a tomato/roasted pepper sauce (not on the menu) which they were happy to do.

        Also - here's a link to our blog with more pics - I hope they don't yank it though.....

        1. Ate gnocchi at la piazzetta today and i would like to confirm that they are still the best:)
