The cooking of Lazio is usually defined in terms of its capital city, Rome. Emulating their forefathers, the Romans of today - at all levels of society - enjoy good food. Vegetables grow prolifically in the region's volcanic soil, notably the famous Roman artichokes. Dishes alla romana are light and flavourful - gnocchi, stracciatella and saltimbocca, for instance, and Lazio's pasta sauces, such as carbonara and amatriciana, are well known.
