Freni e Frizioni
Freni e Frizioni is among the most famous aperitivo joints in Rome. This old car repair shop (aptly named ‘Brakes and Clutches’) crafts delicious cocktails and has a plentiful buffet of foods ranging from pastas and grains to fruits and veggies. It’s great for vegetarians but meat eaters are sure to leave well-fed. Located in the buzzing Trastevere neighborhood, it has a mixed crowd of expats, tourists and locals and the large terrace provides an inviting place to come hang out late into the night.
