Dinner at Myosotis

Continuing on our "Stella restuarant tour of Roma" brought us to dinner last night at Myosotis, near the Piazza della Rotunda (Pantheon neighborhood). It is a pretty restaurant with a "nuovo Roman menu".

We were served bruschetta with the owner's homemade Umbrian olive oil when we sat. Brad started with stracci con tomatoes, olives, and basil, while I had the BEST and lightest gnocchi of my life in a gorgonzola sauce.

For secondi, Brad had a veal medallion , wrapped in procsiutto with an asparagus puree, and I had grilled lamb.

We drank a bottle of Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio di Alto Aldige, and enjoyed our dining experience very much. It was POURING when we got out, so we grapped a taxi to our corner bar, and had coffee and grappa half a block from home. Tutto bene!

Glad you got your luggage, I'm not surprised it took so long with Alitalia.

Barb Cabot:

Palma, such a wonderful post. I can't imagine anything more romantic than being in Rome in the pouring rain, after a meal like that, with the man you love!

Palma & Brad... That gnocchi looks like it could float right off the plate.
What was the asparagas puree seasoned with?

Dorit:

Glad your suitcase finally did arrive, this is not always a "given" right?

Your food pictures make me salivate!! And I always thought in Rome Thursday was "gnocchi day". I must remember this restaurant as I am always in pursuit of THE perfect gnocchi!!

Thanks.
