We were told about this restaurant, the home of the famous Peroni beer, by our Roman landlord. Despite being located several blocks away from the Trevi Fountain, this delightful eatery is far enough removed from the popular routes to avoid being a restaurant catering to tourists. The menu is cucina typica, the waiters pure Roman and our fellow diners predominantly locals and area businessmen. My favorite was the puntarelle with an anchovy sauce (the latter will radically change your likely negative preconceptions about the overly salty and oily fish commonly served on pizza and salads in the US; the anchovy sauce was delicate and a perfect match for the crunchy greens), frito misto and cacio e pepe. The waiters reminded me of those at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn, a bit frosty but with none of the Luger disdain. The prices were fair. I wish we had discovered this place on earlier trips to Roma. It is a great lunch stop and your palate will be most pleased.
