We visited il Giardino Romano on a food tour. We sampled the artichokes, which are prepared quite differently than the way we prepare them. They cook part of the stems, as well as a lot of the leaves. The leaves are crispy and the heart...More

Wide and varied menu; we particularly enjoyed the fried courgette flowers, the artichoke, the orange cream ravioli and the chicory salad (which was recommended as a local specialty). Food was served very quickly. Very attentive, polite and friendly staff with excellent English. We are in...More

the strange thing that all the weeks after our day of rest arrive negative reviews of people who ate right on our closing day. there are restaurants that overlook the space in front of us when we are closed.
