Good Roman food, including chicken, fair prices for food and wine
Directions: 100 m. south of intersection of Via Lungharetta & Viale Trastevere
A new restaurant (it was not here in July 2009) just 100 meters from the intersection of Via Lungharetta and Viale Trastevere on an unattractive but quiet side street (it is a one way dead end for cars). It seats about 40 inside, 30 more outside.
Very flavorful chicken - Rome is city of Bifsteck, fish and pork. It isn’t easy to find dishes other than the “typical” Roman fare, chicken is not easy to find. The chicken here (it appears on the menu three times) was flavorful and had an “authentic” texture, which leads me to believe that it’s free range (I don’t think Perdue has made it to Italy yet). If you’re looking for a seemingly free-range alternative to the traditional Roman fare at a reasonable price, this is a very good choice. Had taglialini cacio e pepe, (very good fresh egg pasta) and the aforementioned chicken & porcini.
The wine list is a bargain, a 2004 Nobili di Montepulciano Riserva for 30 euros, most other wines in the 15 to 20 euros range. Food prices aren’t that bad either, especially for this neighborhood; pastas in the 7.50 to 8.50 euros range, fresh fish & beef about 12 to 15 euros.
Service needs a bit of work, it is more humorous than bad. A very personable young woman (obviously not trained in food service!) with good English was trying to be very helpful. After opening a nice bottle of wine, she handed it to me, “For you!” she said with a big smile. Also the music, although not obtrusively loud, was 90’s rock hits, not a good choice.
