Ristorante Armando in San Lorenzo

Ristorante Armando in San Lorenzo - www.nicolasinn.com One of our regular restaurants is Ristorante Armando in San Lorenzo. Rome’s San Lorenzo neighborhood was heavily bombed by Allied planes during World War II  due to its proximity to Termini train station. Today it is a popular spot for students and young artists and is home to La Sapienza University. While there are not any sights in the area it has a Bohemian vibe with good food at affordable prices.

In 1950 Armando Persiani opened the restaurant and his daughters Carla and Patrizia have now taken over the reins. The quality of the ingredients, authentic recipes and friendly service have kept customers coming back for generations. In 1996 the city awarded the restaurant a Quality Certificate and in 2002 the Lazio Regional Government granted it a Typical Restaurant for Roman Cuisine Certificate.  Ristorante Armando in San Lorenzo - www.nicolasinn.com Ristorante Armando in San Lorenzo - www.nicolasinn.com Ristorante Armando in San Lorenzo - www.nicolasinn.com

The menu offers  pizza cooked in a wood even, classic homemade pasta dishes, and grilled meats and fish.  Traditional pastas such as alla carbonara, all’amatriciana, al cacio e pepe  and tagliolini al sugo di coda are made to perfection. The amazing antipasti buffet is listed as an appetizer but it could easily make up an entire meal. Locals fill the restaurant. There is a big screen TV in one corner where football matches are shown. Don’t be surprised if service is a bit slow if a big game is taking place – the staff will not hesitate to stop in front of the screen to catch the action. The waiters are friendly enough and are happy to offer suggestions.
