I had the privilege of attending a private dinner party here in November 2013. The owner was gracious and fun. The service was great and the food was awesome. There was plenty of food and it flowed flawlessly. I would highly recommend this place. Can't wait to go back

We came across Fabio's place in our quite random visit to Sermoneta. By mere chance it was open. Fabio, who is the owner of the place, welcomed and took good care of is in a very polite manner.

There are lots of places to have a good meal in the little beauitiful medieval village of Sermoneta south of Rome in Lazio. I think I counted about 8 inviting restaurants, which is amazing for such a little village. So, there is lots of competition. Simposio al Corso is a highlight among them. Here you are in the right place,... More

Trust his suggestions as we did, start with antipasti and the suberbly fried artichoke's Lucrezia style, the and you'll discover his secret pasta dressing Trombolotto which when added to Orbetello's Bottarga (fish eggs) makes the "Tagliolini al Trombolotto" a unique and unsurpassed pasta dish, a...

We enjoyed the hospitality of Simposio when visiting Sermoneta over easter, we could immediately tell it was different when we stepped in the first time.
