Located in the stunning Palazzo Valentini, opposite the Trajan Column, with sleek, modern decor and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Vittoriano and Trajan Markets, the newly managed “enoteca” belonging to the county of Rome strictly showcases only the best in local wines and products, plus produce grown at the Rebibbia prison in Rome. The menu lists traditional Roman classics and an abundance of seasonal, vegetable-driven dishes: we loved the gnocchi cacio e pepe and classic amatriciana. Don’t miss the local artichokes, which are in their prime between February and May; you won’t be disappointed.
