Testaccio, My Favorite Food Neighborhood in Rome

Testaccio neighborhood for Travel and Leisure
Contrary to popular belief, it's not always that easy to just "happen" on good food in Rome. Which is why I'm a fan of Testaccio. This fascinating—and increasingly trendy—neighborhood sits just southwest of the Aventine hill and Circus Maximus. It also happens to have some fantastic restaurants and bakeries, not to mention a couple of kick-ass markets.

That's why I wrote about Testaccio for Travel + Leisure's April 2013 food issue. (Now online here).

Check it out to find out more about the new Testaccio market, an artisanal birreria, top-notch Sicilian bakery, and more. I only wish I could have included more of my favorite food stops (like Cafe Barberini for coffee and cornetti and Da Bucatino for a traditional Roman meal), but the word count is what it is!
