After a spectacular three-year run for Sud Italia, Shanon Scott’s ode to the foodways of Southern Italy, the Houston restaurateur has turned his gaze northward to the capital: Rome or Roma (ROH-mah) in Italian. “I wanted to create a casual dining experience for Houstonians,” says Shanon, “and the natural inspiration for that was Rome’s wonderful trattorias.”

“Here at Roma, we’ve created a menu centered around the Roman classics like the pasta trinity — carbonara, amatricana, and cacio e pepe — and deep-dish pizza, which most people think comes from Sicily but actually comes from the Eternal City.” But the departure from southern Italian cooking has also allowed Shanon to include other Italian greats like osso buco and braised lamb shank.

His wine list has also evolved: It now features the three Italian big reds: Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello, as well as favorites from Tuscany like Chianti and Super Tuscan blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
