The perfect location to meet with friends, Renato e Luisa reimagines the flavors of traditional cuisine in an informal, familial environment.
The kitchen revisits the dishes of Roman tradition, rendering them lighter and more flavorful. They take full advantage of seasonal products to create new dishes, all accompanied by the house-made bread, traditional breadsticks (grissini) and desserts.
This is the place to try something different, as they think outside the typical Roman box. Both the items on the menu and the daily specials are worth trying, so go with a few people to be able to sample as many dishes as possible!
For antipasti, try the involtini de bresaola ripieni di formaggio e rucola (cured beef filled with cheese and arugula) or the crudo di pesce (thinly sliced raw fish).
For primi piatti, try the fettucine pachino e ricotta di bufala (fettucine with Sicilian cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella ricotta) or the frascarelli tartufati (a typical pasta from Tuscany with fresh truffles).
For the main dish, go with the raddichio tardive grigliato con taleggio e pinoli (grilled late raddichio with Lombardy cheese and roasted pine nuts) or perhaps the involtini di melanzane con verdure saltate (rolls of eggplant filled with seasonal vegetables).
Don’t skip dessert here; the fondente al cioccolato con crema al mascarpone e composta di arance amare (molten chocolate cake with mascarpone cream and bitter orange compote) is spectacular, as is the crème brulee all’arancia con canestrino di caramello (orange crème brulee topped with a decorative spun-sugar basket).
