Tucked into the Piazza di Pietra and looking out at the stunning columns of Tempio di Adriano, Salatto 42 is the quintessential Roman bar: mellow and loungey for aperitivo (get the spritz—sure you can’t go wrong, but it tastes especially good here), which comes with a constant procession of passed snacks, then progressively rowdier the later it gets. Keep in mind that it tends to get a bit packed and loud inside, with the crowd often spilling out into the square.
