While in Rome to promote their movie, the cast of The Avengers stopped into Antica Pesa, a restaurant that has been family-owned for three generations, to enjoy a meal together.

Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston dined on buffalo mozzarella, homemade prosciutto, breadsticks and grilled zucchini with goat cheese, before digging into two types of homemade pasta – one with tomato and bacon and one with cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper).

After that, they shared a course of grilled beef with spinach and rosemary potatoes.

Finally, for dessert, the movie stars indulged in – what else? – Italian cheesecake.
