One of the benefits of working in Rome is the amazing food…even at the work cafeteria! I can’t tell you how much I look forward to the 1pm lunch each day! You start with the pasta station (3 different choices each day), followed by the salad station (tomato/mozzarella, tomato/burrata, or mixed greens), then the entree (fish or meat), and then dessert. Don’t forget your side of bread and fruit though…of course followed by the espresso bar! Sadly, there will only be four lunches this week as I head back to New York on Friday. Here are the photos of last week’s selections…

I totally agree. I go to Rome frequently for leisure and found a cafeteria for businessmen. I find myself working my sightseeing schedule so I don’t miss a lunch there. Consistently amazing food on the cheap.

Adam, enjoy your last days taking the real stuff into. Funny thing is that Italians eat a lot during a day, at the first sight too much for a normal human (one may start thinking – this guy is going to grow fat fast), but since italian food is made of (mostly) natural ingredients, people do not look fat at all.
When I am in Italy, I never limit myself since I know – I cant and there is no reason for this.

Brings back memories of the two weeks I spent in Florence, working out of the RAI (Italian state TV) station. The food and offerings in the staff cafeteria was as good as at any trattoria I’ve eaten at in Italy or Italian neighbourhoods in North America! Washed down, of course with a few glasses of local Tuscan red vin de pays…

Those dishes look amazing, how do I get a job there?

@Ti – what is your cafeteria for businessmen?
