After three nights in Rome and 10 in Italy, I still hadn't found a place that I wanted to give five stars to. Until this place. My husband and I visited in the early evening on a Tuesday, and the owner, Nana, was a delight. She talked to us about our wine preferences and recommended one we were unfamiliar with. Great choice. The wine was accompanied by a nice plate of bruschetta. Nana was fantastic throughout the night, explaining the dishes on the menu and basically being an excellent hostess. I ordered a Piemontese steak (18 euro), which was so tender and flavorful. It also came with potatoes and a small salad with fennel. My husband ordered the insalata di riso, which had chick peas and a hint of fennel. Delicious! Nana brought us a slice of the most heavenly apple pie (custard base) and I had to try the chocolate cake too (delicious and moist). She also had us try a wonderful wine for dessert, because we share the same name as the grape. It was fantastic!
The prices were varied as was the menu. There is an obvious emphasis on Slow Food. It would be easy to stop by for just a drink and appetizer or create an evening out of it, as we did.
All in all, it was a delightful evening with excellent wine, food, and hospitality. Nana chatted with me in my broken Italian (her English is better than my Italian), and I loved how she described the wines and the foods. The setting is perfect, just around the corner from the Pantheon but on a much quieter street with outdoor seating. We were the only non-Italians. If I get back to Rome, I'll definitely return to this gem!
