Going to Rome June 3rd through June 7th! What and where are the can't miss places for a food lover?!?

Italy of course! Okay, so I am reading through the board and it seems like there are a lot of informed "foodie's" following the site and the board. I am traveling with my girlfriend to Rome for a brief vacation and want to pack in as much as possible! We speak both English and German just in case thats important. I am reading and reviewing the many wonderful places but I want to hear from some people on their experiences and recommendations!

On top of that, I would love to hear of where to go and what to not miss! Where are the best markets? Where are the best truffles? :-) Thank you so much for your time and help and I hope to share any information that I have that discussions might deem neccessary!

  1. If you have not been to Rome before, my best advice is to review recent recommendations and trip reports here and see what restaurant recommendations strike your fancy. Its a big restaurant town, and there isn't any one must go. If you then tailor your request a bit more - with your desired price range, neighborhood or type of food (creative? traditional roman?) you may get more of a response.

    At this season I would keep my eyes peeled for wild strawberries - in any of the major public markets or the smaller street markets scattered through the city.
    which markets you should visit really depends on where you are staying/what will be convenient to your touring plans.

    Lovely season for visiting Rome, Enjoy!
