We spent 4 nights in Rome and visited the Enoteca Buccone for lunch on our last day, by chance, saving the best to last.
It is a wonderfully interesting and atmospheric wine shop and restaurant that just oozes history and tradition - but also a charming and relaxed place to eat. Despite its location, on our visit, there were very few tourists in evidence.
The menu is short, the food is simple but the cooking superb - a few antipasti to start with followed by a choice of the days specials. For the wine lover, you will be spoilt for choice!
After a few days in the manic throng of Rome's tourist hordes, this was a blissful respite! The cherry on the top was that it was also unbelievable value. When our bill was presented, I had to point out that two glasses of wine had erroneously been omitted - our waiter smiled and said said "next time". Need I say more .....

Enoteca Buccone is located just a stone’s throw from bustling Piazza del Popolo, at Via di Ripetta 19-20. Not only a wonderful place to taste and buy wines, or enjoy a light, Roman-style meal (lunch, Mon-Sat, or dinner, Fri & Sat) prepared on the premises.this negozio storico (a shop or location with a bit of history, basically) has inhabited its premises for over a century. In the 1700’s the location housed carriages, but at some point in the 1800’s it became a thriving enoteca (wine shop), supplying wines, liqueurs, and champagne to the local citizens.
As you browse the towering, wooden shelves, laden with wines from all over Italy and the globe (even the Lebanon is represented), as well as foodie gifts and treats, you can almost picture a Victorian-era gentleman selecting a fine Barolo to accompany his evening meal, the atmosphere is so rich.
The shop is filled with original paraphernalia from the shops history, including an original art-deco era mirrored advertisement, and an enormous terracotta urn from which olive oil would have been dispensed.
If you get chatting to any of the staff they will fill you in on the fascinating back-story of the plae, or you can read my "note" in www.ItalianNotebook.com - search for Enoteca Buccone.
