When visiting Rome be sure to explore the adorable Italian restaurants off the beaten path. You’ll be surprised some of the most delicious Italian dishes are served daily, just as if they were right from an Italian’s grandmother’s kitchen. I share my experience from L’Archeologia Cultura & Cucina Restaurant, which was founded around 1890 which is located on the old Roman Road called The Appian Way, about the importance of being adventurous and explore the local restaurants from the heart of Italy’s traditional cuisine. Fun Fact! The Appian Way was built in 312–264 BC and was one of the most important roads of the ancient republic—it connected Rome to Brindisi, in southeast Italy.
