Description: Tra gustose specialità campane, un’attenta selezione di vini e un ambiente raccolto ed elegante, il ristorante Garum - aperto dal dicembre 2011 dal titolare Fioravante Iovine – si farà ricordare per l’alta qualità delle materie prime utilizzate, per la varietà del menù (che alterna piatti fissi a quelli stagionali) e per l’attenzione alla tradizione locale, sapientemente rivisitata e rielaborata. Il piatto forte del ristorante – che è poi quello che dà il nome allo stesso – sono gli spaghetti al Garum, ovvero alla colatura di alici, versione “moderna” dell’antica salsa romana – detta appunto Garum – da cui con ogni probabilità discende.

Whilst staying at Hotel Forum, we asked for recommendations on a good restaurant. Without hesitation, Garum was mentioned and a table was booked right away.
As soon as we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome. The waiters were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and we were able to try some of the local wine. A complimentary glass of prosecco on arrival also added to our delight. Upon leaving, it was like we were old friends. Lovely place with a gently buzzing atmosphere. Highly recommend.
