After reading the reviews on TA decided to try La Fata. It did not disappoint. The meal was fantastic. I read a prior review that said the place was not really Roman, disregard what they say. The restaurant was packed with locals. With the exception of another couple, we were the only tourists there.
The owner, Gianluca, was great. He went over the entire menu (they have a menu in English and Italian) and explained all the dishes. He recommended wines and explained how they might enhance what we ordered. The food was fantastic. I had the burnt mortadella appetizer and my fiancé had the eggplant parmesan. Both outstanding. For entrees we shared the pasta genovese, which I must say, was perfect and the seared beef with Mediterranean seasoning. The beef was cooked a perfect medium rare. Our friends had the ricotta flan appetizer and the ravioli and carbonara. They loved their dishes. For deserts we had the Tierra misú, dark chocolate mousse, white chocolate mousse and fresh strawberries. All excellent.
The prices here are way less than what I expected. At the conclusion, Gianluca gave us his card, took our email addresses, and said to call him directly if we desired to come back.
Go to this restaurant, it is outstanding. You will not be disappointed. I wish Gianluca and his awesome staff all the best.
