I walked past La Fraschetta and thought it looked just the sort of local Trastevere restaurant my wife and I might enjoy on our last night in Rome. And so it was - intimate, simple but attractive décor of red checked table cloths and hanging bunches of garlic and chillies, with a view of a roaring wood fire in the pizza oven at the back of the restaurant. We ate early and were welcomed in, but it's probably best to book as it fills up fast. For starters we had mozzarella fried in breadcrumbs and deep fried courgette flowers in tempura batter, I chose piglet with roast potatoes for main with beans "al fiasco" - butter (?) beans in the Roman style. Perfect crackling and succulent meat. All I heard from my wife as she ate her clam and mussel soup was "This is heaven - five stars." So five stars it is !
