Lunch is quite a bit of a headache in Rome for those who are careful about what they it. Temptation is great to go straight to a huge pasta plate or hurry on a pizza sold by pieces (and take several pieces). Moreover, tourist restaurants are numerous in the old town and even though most of the restaurants are good, some are better than the others.
Spread around Rome are the restaurants L’insalata ricca, a perfect solution to match sweetmeat and reason, and reconcile big and small eaters. You can choose among a wide range of pasta but also big mouthwatering salads.
Our choice: Largo dei Chiavari, close to both Pantheon and Campidoglio
Price: 15-20 euros for a salad and beverage
