We chose this restaurant when my first choice for last night was fully booked. I had some trepidation because in the shadow of the Vatican the restaurants are not known for their excellence, either in service nor in quality of food. Che bella sorpresa!
The menu is limited but creative. The owners, Stefano and Christina, take time to explain the menu and the options for the evening. We enjoyed the cod with red onions, raisins and pine nuts very much. Apparently they always have this entree while others change. For our pasta we shared an excellent ravioli stuffed with potatoes in a sublime sauce involving anchovies. One of the more inventive antipasti was a tramazzini made of polenta, stuffed with chicory, mozzarella and anchovies. Limited wine list, but all local. A pleasant locale, with pretty, subdued dining rooms. Don't be put off by the apparent size of the place when you enter. There are adjacent dining rooms and Osteria delle Commari can handle larger groups as well. Don't miss dessert! We enjoyed a torte con cioccolato fondante on a shortbread crust with raspberry jam. Two antipasti, one pasta, two entrees, cicoria ripassata, dessert, bottle of wine, bread and coffee = €89.
