#1 in Rome About the TripExpert Score

9 expert recommendations



This modern bistro is the brainchild of Patrizia, Domenico and Maurizio of Il Bacaro fame, who wanted to construct a light and linear space to enjoy updated traditional Italian gastronomy.



The menu changes according to the season, but even in winter, lightness is a key word, with plenty of vegetables and herbs.

Be sure to book at least a day in advance.
