The Lazio region
The borough of San Lorenzo, due to the vicinity of the University of Rome La Sapienza, is peopled by lots of students and is full of pubs, clubs and night bars. During World War II it was heavily bombed, but now it is one of the busiest boroughs of Rome, especially for nightlife.
Walking around the open market of this borough is one of the best ways to discover its dynamics, its traditions and typical behaviours. There are stories behind apparently trivial scenes and meaningful glances that are not difficult to understand if you have the patience to wander around the stalls.
The bell tolling of the nearby Santa Maria Immacolata church punctuates time; the belfry is built in the same way as that of San Marco in Venice. At lunchtime, you can have some delicious slices of pizza at the pizzeria “Come Manna dal Cielo”, on 68 Via dei Latini. True roman pizza that is shown to you uncooked and then cooked just after, ask why! You can eat it at Parco dei Caduti, in Via Tiburtina; don't miss the monument placed in the middle of the park, designed by the architect Zevi in 2003 to the memory of the three thousand victims of the bombs.
Go back to Via Volsci and reach street number 101, you'll find a really special place. “Pifebo” is one of the best vintage shops of the area, and maybe of Rome. Very selected items: clothes, records and accessories, all at very reasonable prices.
The bookshop “Giufà” at 38 Via degli Aurunci, is a lovely place where you can flip through a magazine, a newspaper or a book while sipping a hot drink. The shop is furnished with style and is well stocked, cakes and biscuits are home made, and the store often hosts author lectures. As evening approaches, the increasing noise will tell you, San Lorenzo becomes chaotic and very, very crowded. You can follow the chaos and have an aperitif in one of the several pubs (“Rive Gauche” and “Simposio” are good), in one of the wine bars (“La Ferrazza” on Via dei Volsci, for a particular choice, or the great “Fuzzy Bar” at 6 Via degli Aurunci) or go to the “Bar Marani”. Otherwise you can move away from the chaos and have a short walk to the café bookshop “Bar à Book” on 23 Via dei Piceni. The place is similar to “Giufà”, same refined décor, but there is only a big table and you sit next to other customers. There is a buffet for the aperitif and some little tables outside. The café shop is elegant and quiet.
There are few boroughs in Rome that represent the city as well as San Lorenzo does and tell about the city's qualities, faults and limits. San Lorenzo is a young and an old area, an unconventional and a traditional borough at the same time, with its buildings shattered by the bombs of 1943 and the new square of the Immaculate, the cheap pizzerie and the kebabbari (kebab shops), the small traditional shops and the street-style shops. If truth comes more easily out from contradictions, then there is something true in what San Lorenzo shows / then San Lorenzo shows it. Only a few compromises are reached, despite the presence, more or less pacific, of such different identities. San Lorenzo's pride also comes out in the chaos of the weekend.
San Lorenzo is delimited by the Verano monumental cemetery, the university town, the Aurelian walls and Via dello Scalo di San Lorenzo.
Rome is a city that wakes up slowly and San Lorenzo is not an exception.
The most known coffee bars for breakfast are three. The first one is the “Bar dei Belli” at 76 Via Tiburtina. If you are an early riser, you'll have to cope with the sleepy looks of the barmen who have just finished to work a few hours before and are preparing coffees again for the morning clientele. The second is the “Buddha Bar” also on Via Tiburtina, at number 22. There are tables outside where you can find people sit forever and ever. The third is the “Bar Marani”, an old traditional coffee bar of San Lorenzo, at 57 Via dei Volsci. It is small, but its vine-covered terrace is a great place to chill out with friends. Keep this place in mind because it is one of the hottest hangout destinations.
Among the Pizzerie, it is worth mentioning “L'Economica” at 44 Via Tiburtina , “Il Podista” at 244 Via Tiburtina, “Formula 1” at 13 Via degli Equi, and “Il Maratoneta” at 99 Via dei Volsci. Their menus are printed on the paper table covers and there's a relaxed informal atmosphere. Old newspaper cuttings are on the walls and you'll probably get your bill written on the paper table covers. Advised restaurants are “La Mucca Bischera” at 56 Via degli Equi and “Da Franco ar Vicoletto” at 1 Via dei Falisci.
Among the pubs, there is “Rive Gauche” at 45 Via dei Sabelli, Lancelot” at 77 Via dei Volsci, which also has table games, or “Dahlu” at 38 Via degli Equi, also serving tea or herbal tea. Another fashionable pub is “Halloween” at 31 Piazzale Tiburtino, with décor of bats and pumpkins and rock music in the background.
The “Circolo vizioso”, also called “Sotto casa di Andrea”, at 25 Via dei Reti, is a two-floor disco pub. On the ground floor you can dance, while on the first floor you can eat or play table games. For those who wish to listen to good music, there is “Coetus” at 126 Via dei Volsci, or “360 Gradi”, playing mostly rock music.
Finally we advice you not to miss a nutella (special Italian chocolate) pancake at the Creperie on Via dei Volsci. Open till late, it is a sort of meeting point for all those who don't dislike a snack before sleeping.
