Ristorante La Matriciana


The best pasta all’amatriciana in Rome

You can’t leave the Eternal City without first trying the real pasta all’amatriciana. And what better place to do so than Ristorante La Matriciana – now on the list of Italy’s historic places?

The recipe’s origins go back to Amatrice, a village in the upper Lazio region which Anna De Angelis left in 1870, heading for Rome to start her business. Founded as a trattoria in the year Rome was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy (1871), La Matriciana soon became popular with artists after the Teatro Costanzi opened opposite it in 1880. This later became the Teatro Reale dell’Opera in 1928.

The Ristorante has hosted the biggest names in opera, such as Mario Del Monaco, Maria Callas, Carla Fracci and the director Franco Zeffirelli, to name but a few. La Matriciana is still a staple of the Roman tradition and still retains its original style, windows, structure, furniture and even the telephone booth from the 1930s.
