Historic and charming restaurant in Sermoneta, where you can still eat things simple and elegant on the palate. Known as one of the best places of our province famous for its cuisine and original inspired by the late Middle Ages and the history of the Caetani family and the famous gardens of Ninfa close to the country. . It owes its fame to Fabio Stivali medievalist restaurateur and TV personality and his excellent products such as jams and sauces in extra virgin oil, including the famous salsa of wild lemon of the Templars, "The Trombolotto".

Came back to this great little place in Sermoneta. Must try the "Trombolotto" (a magical herb & lemon secret seasoning made by Fabio Stivali, the owner): "Tagliolini Trombolotto Bottarga all'Armagnac" & "Campagnola al Pistacchio e visciole" among the rest of the menu. Cannot go wrong as EVEYTHING is superb and far from the usual trattoria food. For desert try the... More

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
