Via delle Zoccolette, found at the bottom of Via Giulia, is named after the small wooden clogs once worn by the orphans of the Conservatorio dei Santi Clemente e Crescentino. Walking down the street today you will find Pianostrada, a “kitchen laboratory” with modest origins of its own that began selling street food inspired dishes in Trastevere, and has since moved to its current, airy space. The open kitchen restaurant maintains a modern and sophisticated feel, with steel Tolix tables, leather couches and vintage Jieldé lamps. During the months when Rome is enveloped by the “Zefiro” westerly wind, the interior courtyard is the perfect spot for dining al fresco. Try gourmet panini, the exquisite antipasti selection and other daily offerings from their small menu (the focaccia is not to be missed!). The wine list is too long, but inevitably good, and the owners and staff are always friendly; you will eat well in this easy atmosphere.
