This romantic celebrity hangout provides privacy with its several small dining rooms, set in a lovely 16th-century building. The restaurant gets it extra virgin olive oil and ages its cheeses in caves on its estate in Subiaco, and attention to quality is apparent throughout the menu. Black and white truffles feature heavily, according to season. Start with the fried zucchini flowers with honey mushrooms, asparagus and black truffles, or the homemade gnocchi with asparagus, tomatoes, and parmesan. The pastas tend to be more exciting than the mains, but the roasted suckling pig with endive and sautéed zucchini is spectacular.
