This is a very expensive but superb foodie adventure. This restaurant is on the top floor of the Rome Cavielieri Hotel about a 20 minute cab ride outside of the city center. Be sure to bring an appetite and don't be in a hurry. Luxuriate in the experience! The views overlooking Rome are spectacular, so have your concierge ask for window side or patio seating.
We started with Italian champagne and decided to order appetizers, first courses and entrees
instead of the tasting menu. They brought several Amuse Bouche and a lovely bread selection accompanied with a specialty olive oil. Don't miss the focaccia.
My husband started with foie gras two ways with fresh spring peas that defy description. I had a tuna tartare that was light and delicious. For first courses, we had zucchini blossoms with caviar and risotto with scampi. We can highly recommend both. As entrees, we had lamb loin and the turbot. The lamb loin was simply devine, and although the turbot was delicious, the preparation
was not my favorite.
I must say that the wine list is daunting, but the sommelier was incredibly helpful and unpretentious. They have an Italian list and then a second menu for all the rest! We started with an Antinori Cabernet Franc Super Tuscan and it was amazing (Matarocchio 2009).
The second bottle was an Azienda Agricola Duemani (Suisassi 2009). Also very special.
At meal's end, we were too full for dessert, but they arrived with a silver cabinet filled with drawers of confections, jellied fruit and sweets. The tower of temptation was too much to resist, so we ordered espressos, nibbled at goodies and enjoyed the evening thoroughly.
They did not add a service charge to the bill and if you feel inclined to leave a tip, they much prefer cash, as the government taxes are very high.
