FOOD & DRINK

EAT, DRINK, BUY. A UNIQUE TASTE PATH DISCOVERING THE BEST FLAVOURS OF ITALIAN CUISINE.

FROM STARRED RESTAURANTS  TO STREET FOOD!

From starred cuisine to street food, from trattoria to gourmet restaurant, from wine bar to beer garden, from the most beautiful terraces to the most pleasant places, but also where you can do some quality shopping. Here is a small guide, with all the details and essential information about what I consider to be the best places in town where to go to eat well and why not also drink and shop in peace. Each address included is a place I know personally and have had the opportunity to test directly. Of course, it is only my opinion but one that I have also compared with other people when I could. Of course, it is only my opinion which may not find everyone in agreement because it concerns our personal tastes and habits. Many could be the reasons and factors that may influence our choices and judgement. I apologise if you may not be enthusiastic, but rest assured that my opinion has been expressed with the utmost sincerity, and by limiting myself to listing places that have disappointed me or in which I have found some perplexity. Thus, you may not find some addresses that perhaps some official guidebook has extolled. Nevertheless, I hope that everything will be as you imagine and wish it to be, and above all, I will not disappoint you, inviting you to let me know your opinion so we can make the most of it.

Not only starred restaurants, but also just high-class ones, more or less expensive, but sometimes with reasonable prices. Still others with good value for money, and then trattorias, pizzerias, ethnic restaurants and those more on the doorstep, places where you can go at any time and when you are looking for something less formal. The restaurants have been subdivided by neighbourhood from nearest to furthest and ordered from starred to very good and then the others. To establish the order of inclusion, I have referred only to distance for each category.

 All prices included are indicative and will be considered a reference only. They are per person and do not include drinks.

The menus included may vary according to the season, and I recommend that you always check opening hours and closing days. I do not presume to be exhaustive or absolute; I have included those I might suggest to myself and a friend. There may be some inaccuracies, and I apologise from the outset, but the restaurant business’s climate can be very variable. Chefs who change their homes, closures, schedule changes and other variations.

The route is perhaps a little long and contains several addresses ideal for every hour of the day.
But as you scroll through the pages, you will find more than one address that may suit your taste and curiosity

 The explanatory pictures are taken from the official pages of each restaurant.

The journey is very long and contains many addresses ideal for any hour. Browse through the pages to find the place you prefer.

About:

Restaurants
The best Roman tables are found in five-star hotels. So for an exceptional dinner, that is where you usually go. But as some are within walking distance from the flat, you can enjoy a gourmet dinner without going far.

Trattorie
Trattorie are the typical Roman restaurants that have survived their time. At one time, the peculiarity of these places was that they ate well and spent little and had a rather hasty service. Nowadays, you eat well ‘sometimes’ and often pay a lot. Instead, as far as service is concerned, nothing has changed; approximation is always at home. The menu, whatever the trattoria, always revolves around the four bastions of Roman cuisine: Amatriciana, Carbonara, Cacio e Pepe, Gricia, and a few main courses such as lamb, scaloppine, meatballs, coda alla vaccinara, and rarely other choices. As for desserts, they rarely go beyond ricotta cake and tiramisu. Despite this, some trattorias represent traditional Roman cuisine with pride and value, and their managers can be considered true ambassadors of taste.

 Don’t be lured by the square tablecloths. Many shoddy trattorias use this ploy to fool customers. Avoid all restaurants near tourist attractions, especially those with insolence, or false smiles invite you in. Alongside the old, classic trattorias, new ones are springing up that carry on this tradition with pride and less superficiality, investing in the quality of the products, the way they are prepared and served.

Pizza
For a long time, pizza was considered a simple, quick and, above all, cheap meal. Now, even pizza has gourmet space, not just bare tables and quick meals. But also a pizza signed by more or less famous pizzaioli makers and a new way of interpreting it. Fresh doughs, longer and longer leavening times, new flours made from ancient grains, and increasingly more prosperous and imaginative toppings and combinations are being proposed.
The original PIZZA, recognised by Unesco as an intangible heritage of humanity, has a few simple rules: it must rise naturally, have a diameter of no more than 35 cm, a raised rim of between 1 and 2 cm, and be topped only with peeled tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella (or mozzarella of guaranteed quality), extra virgin olive oil and basil, baked only in a wood-fired oven, and it is the MARGHERITA or VERACE pizza. But I believe everyone can enjoy a pizza according to their taste. In Rome, there are two schools of thought on how pizza should be and, depending on the pizzeria, there are two contrasting styles.

The Pizza alla Romana is very thin, almost crispy in the mouth, and with essential toppings.
High, soft Neapolitan pizza with a nice crust and rich toppings.

Until a few years ago, you had to move away from the centre to find an exceptional pizza. Now, in addition to the less central districts’ excellent addresses, you can enjoy a fantastic pizza right in the centre, whether you prefer it Roman-style: thin and crispy or Neapolitan-style, high, soft and soft and well-seasoned

ROMAN CUISINE
Typical Roman cuisine is one of the tastiest and oldest in our country. It comes from popular, simple and delicious recipes rich in fats, aromas, spices and seasonings.

The essential ingredients are offal (guts or slaughterhouse waste), tail, head, and the so-called fifth quarter, i.e. what is left of the cattle after the noblest parts, which used to be destined only for aristocrats, have been separated.
Typical Roman dishes
Spaghetti alla carbonara, Bucatini all’amatriciana (which were not actually originally a Roman dish although together with carbonara they are an emblem of it), Tonnarelli cacio e pepe, Rigatoni con la Pajata, spaghetti ajo ojo e peperoncino, penne all’arrabbiata.  Pasta and bean soup, Chickpea soup, Gnocchi alla romana, Saltimbocca alla romana, Involtini alla romana, Coda alla vaccinara, Abbacchio alla romana, Abbacchio a scottadito, Chicken with peppers, Trippa alla romana, Coratella with artichokes, Beans with pork rinds, Cod fillet. Carciofo alla romana, Carciofo alla giudìa, Puntarelle con acciughe, Cicoria ripassata, Indivia e acciughe, Broccolo romanesco, Supplì, Fiori di zucca, Insalata di puntarelle. Black cherry tartare. As for dessert, we rarely go beyond ricotta cake.
Roman dishes and where to eat them.
Roman dishes can be enjoyed everywhere, both in the gourmet version, in the most renowned restaurants and, of course, in the classic and popular trattorias that are the canonical place for this cuisine. Given the ease and frequency of preparation, Roman dishes are always delicious everywhere, but they only reach true perfection in a few places. It is up to you to choose where to enjoy authentic Roman cuisine, whether in more refined and obviously more expensive establishments or in more affordable, noisy but cheerful places with friendly service, to say the least.

Jewish-Roman cuisine
Roman cuisine is flanked and complemented by that of the Jewish-Roman tradition. Its cod fillets or zucchini flowers, sour cherry tart, artichokes alla giudia, anchovies with endive, and sweetbreads with artichokes, are all dishes that can be tried in the restaurants of the Ghetto.

All reference prices are per person and do not include drinks, and, above all, it should be borne in mind that they are only indicative

Welcome, the journey begins!

Nevertheless, the young chef knows his stuff. Trained in Roman trattorias and completed his training alongside more emblazoned chefs. The result is a cuisine that looks ahead without forgetting its origins.

Not far from home in the splendid Piazza Farnese is the refined Camponeschi Restaurant.
In a sumptuously furnished Renaissance-style setting amidst candelabra, ceramic glassware and silver cutlery, you can enjoy Roman and Mediterranean dishes cooked with excellent ingredients, accompanied by the excellent wines you can choose from the wine list, including those produced by the family farm. The dehors is also very pleasant, although the outside tables are a little too close. Open only in the evening from 7pm until midnight. Also ideal for a romantic dinner.

Indeed, in a restaurant of this kind, even if there is no shortage of international dishes on the menu, one would expect to find something more sophisticated than the traditional, albeit well-prepared dishes.

TRADITIONAL

Roscioli is a historic Roman eatery and a reference point for all tourists coming to Rome. An unmissable stop even at the cost of queuing for half an hour even if you have booked months in advance, and then sitting at tiny tables shoulder to shoulder with other diners. One only has to cross the threshold to find oneself in a world of flavours, with a vast selection of cheeses, hams, salamis, mozzarellas, and wines among the best in national production to take away or consume on the spot. But in addition to the excellent and expensive cured meats, one comes here above all to enjoy the dishes of Roman cuisine. Unfortunately, the restaurant is always crowded, and you are forced to eat at small tables set up everywhere, elbow to elbow with other customers. The service would like to be professional but is somewhat grabby (due to the large crowds and poor training).
Reservation is a must; otherwise, it will be impossible to find a place.
I personally prefer other places that are cheaper, less arrogant, more customer-oriented and less expensive, especially for the type of dishes on offer. An excellent carbonara or an equally good amatriciana is not hard to find.
The Roscioli group include even a bakery with delicious pizza and bread. The Bar Pasticceria with excellent coffee and croissants, and Rimessa (wine bar) are all within walking distance of each other, all overcrowded, all uncomfortable apart from the quality of the food, which is unquestionable, while the prices may be.
The menu is very rich and in addition to the classics of the Roman tradition, it features many proposals of fish, both raw and cooked, as well as fine cold meats and cheeses.

There are the traditional Roman Specialities: from Carbonara to rigatoni with pajata, coda alla vaccinara, to grilled meats, and many fish specialities.
The wine selection is good. Howevwe, prices are a little high, probably also due to the location.

It is a restaurant created by Paola Alice, Chiara, Flaminia and their mother and has been a cult and trendy place for a long time. A warm and welcoming environment, furnished in vintage style and with attention to detail. Different chairs and tables, always other glasses and plates. There is an excellent counter at the entrance, seating around the kitchen’s perimeter, and a comfortable outdoor area full of plants in the courtyard. This restaurant, which used to be considered a place dedicated to street food, both in terms of the offer and the tiny spaces available, thanks to the skill of its owners, has now become a real gourmet meeting place, both in the street food version and in the more comfortable one where you sit at a reserved table in an informal but elegant setting, rather than in the garden or at the outdoor counter: unparalleled focaccia, sandwiches and burgers, as well as other more decadent dishes such as Beef Tenderloin Tartare; Fresh Spaghettoni; Rabbit Tuna cooked to perfection on sight.

Cesare al Casaletto  is one of the best trattorias in Rome.

Accompanied by an excellent selection of wines prepared by the very friendly sommelier and host Leonardo Vignoli. The desserts, such as the black cherry tart and the mille-feuille, are fabulous.

Although it has only been open for a few years, it looks like a typical noisy Roman trattoria that smells of cuisine as soon as you walk through the door.  The menu obviously reflects the classic Roman tradition of Carbonara, Matriciana, and Cacio e Pepe, although here, much attention is paid to the raw materials and seasonality of the products.
Both the first and second courses are well prepared.
Rather essential wine list.
Very informal service.
The ambience is minimal, certainly not the place to relax.

PIZZA Roman Style
Average price €25
/50

For lovers of the thin and crunchy Roman-style pizza, this pizzeria was one of the first to enhance this type of pizza by taking it away from hit-and-run establishments with paper tablecloths, an approximate product and somewhat hasty service and elevating it to a gourmet product in a more refined setting. With excellent dough and quality toppings. Now many other pizzerias
Have sprung up in this wake, and a little Emma has been overshadowed. But if you want to stay in the neighbourhood, even if we are far from the beginning, it is not to be dismissed entirely. The interior space, dominated by a dramatic skylight, is spacious and furnished in a minimalist style that is sometimes a little too noisy. However, there is also a small outdoor area. In addition to pizza, there are bruschettas, fried meats, cold cuts, cheeses and many other dishes. The pizzas, which is the reason for coming here the pizza is the classic Roman style: very thin, crispy, with a few burn marks on the edges, as in the average Roman pizzeria, while the toppings are really excellent and of great quality, these indeed outside the norm.

Great wine list Both craft and industrial beers
Definitely high prices for a pizzeria.
 Sloppy and unfriendly service.

Speciality Fried Neapolitan Pizza – Pizza alla Napoletana

La Masardona is one of the most famous and oldest Neapolitan pizzerias. It was in the 1940s that Anna Manfredi, known as ‘la Masardona’, began selling her fried pizzas in the streets of Naples. However, for some years now, La Masardona is no longer just one of the oldest fried pizza parlours in Naples but has also opened a branch in our city.

In addition to the famous fried pizza, you can find the classic round pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven. The fried pizza to try is, without a doubt, the Masardona stuffed with ricotta, provola, tomatoes, pepper and basil

For those who love the genre, I have to say they are unique in both taste and size. Ps, the pizza must be eaten strictly with the hands

OVEN-BAKED PIZZA
The choice is not very wide, but the classic pizzas are all there, from the Marinara to the Margherita, plus a few other variations, such as the Gennarino with sausage, provola cheese and friarielli.

At the top of Janiculum Hill, one of the most beautiful corners of Rome is close to the famous Fontanone. The Antico Arco was one of the first restaurants to seek a new direction in Roman dining, saying no more about the sloppy style of old trattorias and classic restaurants. Instead, it immediately proposed attentive service and quality, innovative cuisine that differed from the ubiquitous and usual gastronomic offerings. Over the years, it has remained faithful to its line, continuing to confirm its gourmet choice with a constantly evolving cuisine that ranges from creative to more traditional dishes, with a particular focus on vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. And although today, many other establishments have come to the fore on the Roman scene, it remains unquestionably of an excellent level and a good choice for both cuisine and location.

Tripe is part of the so-called ‘Quinto quarto’, one of the famous poor cuts from the slaughterhouse, which is nothing more than the stomach of the bovine animal. Although present in the cuisine of many parts of Italy, Piedmont, Emilia and Tuscany, it is a typical Roman dish and part of the city’s culinary tradition, so much so that there is a way of saying ‘Saturday Tripe’ since Saturday was the day of slaughter.

The Osteria della Trippa in Trastevere is an establishment that, although recently opened, has gained considerable space among the gastronomic haunts that have brought prestige to Roman cuisine.And if you love or want to try Roman cuisine, L’Osteria della Trippa is the place to go.
The name speaks for itself. On its menu, you will find at least five different preparations that have tripe as the main ingredient. Trippa alla romana with pecorino cheese . Trippa fritta Trippa con uovo Trippa con ravioli , Trippa con fagioli and even tripe meatballs. But, of course, one doesn’t live alone on tripe, so Rigatoni con la Pajata, Carbonara, Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe, Amatriciana, Maltagliati al ragù, Pesto di Broccoli, Romani.

BAFFETTO and la MONTECARLO         
Are the most famous and visited Pizzerias of the Historical Centre. You will find these 2 Pizzerias reported in all international guides. They belong to the category of the old pizzerias, where people used to go to be with friends without spending too much. They contemplate: waiting in line for a long time, an approximate and above all quick service, eating quickly and freeing the table as soon as possible, the thin and crunchy pizza alla Romana and poorly seasoned and almost always burnt, few other proposals, do not ask for a coffee or a drink are simply not contemplated, affordable prices, but in my opinion too high if you put with the offer. If you want your food mediocre but in large portions. While you prefer a little burnt and undercooked pizza, these two places are definitely highly recommended.However, you must be prepared for a long wait and be willing to eat in confusion, practically attached to other diners and with friendly but rushed service.
I don’t deny that this can be enjoyable, especially if you enjoy being in company.

For many, one of the best cuisines in Rome.
It has been the revelation restaurant of recent years. The place to absolutely go. Now a few years have passed, and perhaps something is not quite right, and you risk being vaguely disappointed, not least because, given the hype, expectations may be too high. In the meantime, it is an unusual place because apart from the private dining room, there are only two large convivial tables, i.e. you eat together with other patrons seated around these large tables and in front of the open kitchen.

Reservations are compulsory and can only be made by e-mail, and with a credit card, you pay in advance and must cancel well in advance.
There is only the tasting menu at lunch 60€ 5 courses proposed by the chef and dinner 2 menus one vegetarian the other carnivorous 110€ obviously drinks not included. Here, the raw material is sacred; every product is carefully selected and prepared with passion. The menus change according to the season and are a journey through taste and flavours meant to surprise. Indeed, some dishes are really ambitious. I don’t know whether or not to recommend this restaurant if you want to try something original. It is definitely at the top of the list. Otherwise, perhaps it is better to go to more conventional addresses.
On the other hand, if you are not interested in a gourmet dinner and just want to stop for breakfast, a quick lunch or an aperitif, in the parallel street you can try RETROVINO & CAFFE’.

Like this restaurant, which has always offered its patrons high quality. A gastronomic proposal of an excellent level, varied and suitable to satisfy any desire at any time of day or evening. These range from a selection of cured meats, hams and cheeses to the oyster bar, with Italian, French and Irish oysters and raw seafood, as well as the valuable section dedicated to the catch of the day. And as if all this were not enough. Now leading the kitchen is the Nabil Hadj Hassen, a great interpreter of Roman cuisine (cacio e Pepe and carbonara are considered by many to be among the best in the city) and beyond. The tortellini in broth or with Parmigiano e cream are remarkable.

ADELAIDE Restaurant & Lounge
Adelaide at the boutique hotel Vilòn inside the Palazzo Borghese is the restaurant of the moment. The place you absolutely must go this is at least the current thinking, and I must say that the judgement is entirely appropriate.
The location is beautiful and hospitable, furnished with great care, and full of atmosphere both in the beautiful halls in winter and in the garden during the warm season. But in addition to enjoying the ambience, one also goes to the restaurant for the food. This is where chef Gabriele Muro comes in, who manages to give each dish that personal and sometimes original touch that can ennoble even a simple amatriciana. But many other proposals, especially those based on fish, make the evening memorable.
The wine cellar is good, and the desserts are excellent.

A la carte dishes, including ‘timeless Roman temptations’, cost between 19 and 30 €.

Ciccio Sultano’s first time in Rome

Perhaps after years of decline and apparent neglect, Via Veneto seems to be trying to regain its identity and return to its former glory. Evidence of this are the new and exciting openings of the last year that are arousing a particular interest, at least among lovers of good cuisine. GIANO inside Hotel W in Rome deserves special attention. At the helm of GIANO is Chef Ciccio Sultano, an actual celebrity on the Italian gastronomic scene thanks to his Duomo in Ragusa, Sicily.
Although we are in a 5-star luxury hotel, the style is minimal and informal. The dishes range between sea and land and bring back the tastes and flavours of Sicilian cuisine that have made the Chef famous and appreciated. One of them is the spaghetti Taratata (red tuna roe, lemon, toasted bread crumbs and grouper carpaccio) or the pasta fuori norma (with aubergines, tomato and salted ricotta cheese) and the inevitable pasta with sardines. The desserts are by Fabrizio Fiorani, recognised as one of the 50 Best Pasty Chef’s, a true ecstasy for the palate and take-away.
Wine List present a fine selection.

Young and attentive service

Giano certainly is an exciting novelty, and at the moment, the prices also seem attractive at around 80 € per person.

Brunch on Sundays and not to be missed in summer served in the garden.

ClosedMonday
Tuesday – Saturday: 7pm to 12am

People probably come to this pizzeria to say I’ve been there rather than for the pizza itself. And it is immediately apparent by observing most of the patrons, who have come to look and be looked at
Here everything is exaggerated, starting with the excess of flowers at the entrance, the décor, the number of servers and consequently, perhaps also the prices. In addition to pizzas, the menu features appetisers with products that are not trivial, indeed quite refined, from San Daniele ham to Patanegra, Bresaola, buffalo mozzarella and burrata.
 But let’s go back to the pizzas, which here are thin, or rather very thin, crispy, well seasoned, with excellent quality products that can be seen at first glance and are confirmed by the taste.
 The dough is really too thin, but this is a natural choice since they do not use any yeast. For me, who loves Neapolitan-style pizza, it is not easy to give an independent judgement. However, regardless of taste, the pizza is actually good, but thanks above all to the excellent toppings. As far as prices are concerned, they are decidedly out of the average and range from €13 for the pizza alla marinara, the simplest one, to €65 for the Pata Negra pizza. For a pizza you spend an average of €60, far too much, but at least I can say that I’ve been there.

The restaurant is modern and pleasant enough. But the best surprise comes when you scroll through the menu, which features grilled fish, vegetables, and even oysters. In addition to grilled fish, there are excellent raw dishes, which are the first courses that reach levels of true excellence. The desserts are also super. Bread and pasta are homemade, and the vegetables come from the private garden.

Mondays; open only evenings except for Saturdays and Sundays when it is also open for lunch

This popular trattoria opened a few years ago in a neighbourhood that is certainly not central but easily accessible. Trattoria l’Avvolgibile is a creation of Michelin-starred chef Adriano Baldassarre, who here, in a sense, wanted to take a reverse route and return to offering cuisine and dishes from where he began, obviously without forgetting anything of his glorious career in the kitchen. Everything here goes back a long way, from the ambience that recalls the decor of an old trattoria with period furniture and checked tablecloths. Still, above all, it is a return to the flavours and aromas that are now rare. Naturally, the gastronomic proposal is very polar, with the classics of Roman cuisine consistently excellent. Limited choice on the wine list.
 Service is a little uncertain.

It is a reference point for Romans and those who love Roman cuisine. You can taste all the dishes of Roman cuisine prepared discreetly. Although the restaurant is always very crowded and the tables are too close, the walls, as in many old restaurants, are covered with autographed photos of more or less famous people who have passed by here. 

Vox populi reports that the carbonara here is superbly prepared. However, the facts say that it is in the norm, as are all the other classic dishes of Roman tradition that also accompany other proposals not strictly related to traditional dishes. The Roman soul on the table and dining room is more than present.

 TESTACCIO – OSTIENSE DISTRICTS

TESTACCIO OSTIENSE

Testaccio, well served by transport (bus 23 – 280-30) is a historic district of Rome with unique charms, as are Monti and Trastevere. The Romans have always gone to this district for its gastronomic tradition dating back to the Middle Ages, which was made even more predominant by the birth of the slaughterhouse, which has become one of the city’s major cultural and artistic centres.
Today Testaccio is still a destination for gourmets and remains one of the best neighbourhoods in Rome in which to try Roman cuisine, but not only. In addition to the classic and spartan trattorias of the past, there is a constant ferment of new gourmet restaurants and innovative gastronomic proposals, a ferment that can also be found in the adjacent Ostiense district, once a dormitory district and today a hub of nightlife with its excellent addresses.

The famous Testaccio district is the outpost of Roman cuisine, and Checchino has been its temple since 1887.

Checchino is a historic restaurant in every sense of the word. It has been in existence for over 130 years. Here you can eat authentic Roman dishes, even those practically disappearing from every menu and table. Impeccably cooked and with service worthy of note. A plunge into the past’s flavours must be tasted at least once. Also, an incredible selection of cheeses and excellent desserts.

If you don’t want to give in to temptation, there is also a vegetarian menu. Not to be missed is the wine cellar carved out of caves in the Monte dei Cocci (an artificial mountain formed by the accumulation of vases and wineskins that have been disposed of here since ancient Rome. The wine list is immense and equally prestigious.

Of course, we are not in a gourmet paradise, but we are in front of the classic menu of the Roman tradition: amatriciana, carbonara, tonnarelli cacio e Pepe, with robust flavours and generous portions. The meatballs and rolls are excellent. The service is too friendly and reflects the typical Roman indolence but don’t mind that; it is part of the local folklore.

The Enoteca La Torre at Villa Laetitia, not far from the city centre, is an award-winning restaurant inside the splendid villa owned by the Fendi family. The elegant restaurant is dominated by a large window overlooking the internal garden with precious furnishings, a rich mise en place with candelabras, and fresh flowers in a harmonious luxury that makes the ambience exceedingly elegant. So naturally, all this calls for a cuisine aligned with such beauty, so we find Domenico Stile, a chef of Neapolitan origin who trained alongside the most excellent Italian chefs (Vissani, Bottura, Cannavacciuolo, Crippa). In his cuisine, we find and feel the full flavours of his land, which here are creatively revisited in extraordinary dishes in every aspect, both meat and fish dishes, right down to the desserts, a continuous invention and explosion of flavour.

La Pergola is the only restaurant in Rome to have three Michelin stars and confirms this every year. So if you want to treat yourself to a special, indeed unique, evening, this is where you must come. Meanwhile, the location on the top floor of the Hotel Cavalieri Hilton offers a breathtaking view, so beautiful that it gives the illusion of being able to touch the dome of St Peter’s with your fingertips. But it is not just the location. The ambience is extra luxurious, from the furnishings to the cutlery, the candelabras, the flower boxes, the glassware, and even a Tiepolo, which is displayed on one wall.

And the cuisine of award-winning chef Heinz Beck lives up to such wonder.

Trying it is like taking a real journey into a paradise of taste and flavour, elegance, beauty, and lightness: experiencing happiness at the table. The impeccable service seems to be directed by a conductor.

Obviously, superb wine cellar.

Tasting menu from €300

In a quiet side street in the Prati district, near Piazza Mazzini, a decidedly simple but equally well-kept restaurant is the setting for one of the city’s most exciting fish restaurants. Already the name Acciuga (anchovy) Phexpresses the whole philosophy of the restaurant, and the rather excellent cuisine reflects the style of the restaurant. It is based on poor raw materials that acquire great value thanks to the care and essential style of the young chef Federico Delmonte. Very few seasonings, seasonality and simplicity, are the prerequisites for each of his dishes. On the menu: fusilli with mussels, passatelli with mullet sauce, gnocchi with clams, fried fish, squid on the spit and, the absolute star, the grill on which whole fish, meat, broths and vegetables are cooked.
