Er Buchetto


The pictoresque hills of Rome are the perfect place to taste the only and true porchetta romana, the famous spit-roasted pork of the capital. But the town of Ariccia and its enchanting landscape is so hard to reach that even the greediest glutton backpacker will pull back. Er Buchetto, an old tavern close to the Opera Theatre and as famous in town as the Colosseum, is the right alternative at your fingertips. They’ve been slicing porchetta since 1890, alongside with coppa, salami, ham, bread and cheese at a real bargain. Buon appetito.
