The general rule is: Don’t dine around the train station, but there are a few exceptions. Da Danilo is one of them. Popular with locals on business lunches and cucina romana pundits, this intimate trattoria offers authentic Rome and Lazio fare, made with top-notch local products. Don’t let the informal setting, homey wood paneling and soccer celebrity photos on the walls trick you: This restaurant’s fine dining, and care for quality, ranks as one of Rome’s finest. Mainstays include one of Rome’s best cacio e pepe, served out of a massive, scooped out Pecorino cheese round; the house carbonara, creamy and egg-forward; and homemade gnocchi served, as tradition dictates, exclusively on Thursdays. The beef tartare, grilled lamb chops, and lardo-laced ribeyes are menu strong points, as any other daily carnivore special. The wine list includes a good choice of fine Lazio labels, and there are always interesting tastings and events hosted in the small private room downstairs.
