This intimate osteria on the corner of nightlife central and the hill of broken amphorae, serves everything from traditional cucina romana to creative interpretations. Charming best buddies Claudio and Alessandro base their offer on fresh produce sourced at the nearby market, and the experience gathered working in famous kitchens around the world. Signature musts include golden-crusted fried mozzarella “in carrozza,” and a wide choice of pastas, ranging from classic carbonara, to large paccheri tubes with mussels, clams, and cherry tomatoes. My favorite remains “gricia coi carciofi,” a tomatoless amatriciana with added slivers of braised artichoke. Let the honest vino flow and leave room for the apple tartlet with cinnamon gelato.
