98 Via Giovanni Branca
Rome , Italy

This restaurant, located one block from the Piazza Santa Maria Liberatrice, isn’t much to look at from the outside: a few umbrella-topped tables in front of a graffiti covered wall with frosted glass windows. The limited seating inside, though, fills quickly with diners coming to sample the expertly prepared, yet simple pastas and offal. Once home to a slaughterhouse, the small district of Testaccio has a tradition of well executed secondary cuts of meat, and this restaurant is no exception with dishes like gricia (thick noodles simmered with pork jowl) and trippa alla romana (tripe slow-cooked in tomato and mint).
