Not one of some luxury clothing shop, neither of a jewellery, even if there are many in the neighbourhood. No, the most spectacular shop front you’ll discover, at a few steps from the Pantheon, is that of Angelo Feroci. One of the best and the oldest roman butcher, since 1885 at the 15, via della Maddalena.
Italian and also Danish meat (beef, veal, lamb…) you can see on the beautiful marble counters that have more or less a century, is still of great quality. But that is only a little part of that amazing and beautiful shop where you can find much more.
The best artichokes “alla romana” or fried” alla giudia” (an old roman jewish receipt). Even the mashed potatoes prepared with Parmesan is a masterpiece. As so many “antipasti”, to start with as broccoli’ pie, grilled eggplants or zucchini, stuffed with prosciutto, olives, mozzarella etc…
The only think that you will not find at Feroci is a dessert. No problem, you have to walk just for two minutes to the via degli Uffici del Vicario and take some marvellous ice cream or pastries in another historical place, Giolitti, the oldest ice cream parlour of Rome.
