Authentic Italian Evening

Kitchen with very interesting flavors that are not trivial. The external location could be improved. The owner of the restaurant helps the choice of dishes (of which he is rightly very proud) with a bit of advertising for products marketed. I think that you could try it. Cucina con sapori molto interessanti che non sono banali. La location esterna potrebbe... More

I have eaten at this restaurant no less than 10 times, most recently in July, and have enjoyed the experiences. The owner, Fabio, is a wonderful host and it seems to be a private celebration with every visit. He always makes the recommendations for the meal and the wine, and he never steers us wrong. The menu is particular, with... More

I visited the beautiful village of Sermoneta (LT), 40 miles south of Rome, while on vacation with my family. After walking around this splendid fortified village that transported us back to the Middle Ages we ended our tour at the restaurant "Il Giardino del Simposio" where we had a dinner to remember. Nested in a small outdoor patio with live... More

nella simpatica cornice di una terrazza spartana nel cuore di sermoneta, il giardino del simposio è un ritrovo accogliente che lascia soddisfatto il palato. Buoni i tagliolini trombolotto e bottarga, sperimentati nella sorpresa al limone (poco igienica ed un pò volgare), ottimi gli strozzapreti ricotta mandorle e finocchietto selvatico (magari un pò sciapi), l'arrosto alla cardinale un pò invernale ma...
