Went to Rome for business and managed to have a day off so got the opportunity to go and visit a old work colleague of mine who lives north of the Capital. we went to this restaurant on a monday night (usually they are closed but as it was bank-holiday we have been lucky). the restaurant itself is very small 7 or 8 tables most. on the night they had only a couple more tables so I presume it was an easy nigh for them but O M G one of the bet meal I had in Italy! as soon as we sat down we were offered a complimentary glass of prosecco and a little terrine with chickpeas and other delicacy inside. as starter my fried had a flan of asparagus that was ok but my "tortino al tartuo" diced potatoes, truffle and cheese served in a terrine was definitely much better.
as pasta I had a classic sardinian pasta (according to the lady chef / owner) called colurgionis very similar to ravioli with potatoes and feta cheese. nice but without sauce I had the feeling something was missing. instead my friend opted for maltagliati (pasta cut in irregular shapes) with broad beans and pecorino cheese very nice indeed.
as main-course we both had to have the roasted pork Sardinian style. it was out of this world!!!!!! a tender rib of hog with cracklings. sublime! side I had a light salad and my friend headed for some onions roasted in balsamic.
as with my friend we didn t see each other for a while we had lots to talk about so before dessert we decided to have a portion of cheese each. a selection of 4 or 5 cheeses all from sardinia and they all were excellent! as dessert 1 had a basket with chocolate mousse and strawberries and my friend went for a delicate sponge and cream that now i don t remember what it is called! the lot was washed down by 2 very nice bottles of "is arenas 2007 riserva" a very nice full body fruity red from sardinia too. overall a great meal in a small but nice restaurant in a beautiful part of the world. a must try
