Rome Food Festivals March-April 2018

11 February 2018

We are back with our food festivals recommendations! Food festivals are an amazing opportunity to experience the local people and food and we strongly recommend to look out for them when on vacation!

Sagra “casatiello, fave e vino” 

Ponza – 27 March

Would you like to have an authentic food experience in a wonderful place? Consider going to this food festival in Ponza, an island not too far from Rome and easily reachable by ferry. It will take place on the 27th of March. In a beautiful and sunny weather – oh yes! Summer is coming! – you will have the chance to try what we call “Casatiello”, a typical Easter cake made with salami, eggs and pecorino cheese. It will be accompanied with broad beans and wine

Sagra del Carciofo (artichoke)

Ladispoli – 13, 14 & 15 April

This is one of the most popular food festivals in the region of Lazio, the artichoke being a very important ingredient in the Roman cuisine. Many of you might have come across the famous Roman artichoke recipe or the Jewish artichoke recipe. If you are an artichoke lover, you definitely should not miss this event! It will take place in Ladispoli, a sea town only 60 Km away from Rome. Once again, what’s better than having some great food by the sea in a nice weather?

Sagra dei Frascategli

Morolo – 3 April

Morolo is a lovely small town about 90 Km from Rome, nestled in a beautiful valley. In here on the 3rd of April you have the chance to eat a delicious local dish called “frascategli”. Frascategli are made with white flour and look very similar to “Gnocchi”, but they are not exactly the same…would you like to know why? What’s the best way to discover it than having it explained by a local during the festival? Frascategli will be served in different sauces, for example with tomato sauce or with onions, broccoli and sausage. Obviously there will be a lot of wine, cheese and local music.
