My new fave in Prati: Sorpasso

A friend told me about Sorpasso in Prati (the area around the Vatican) about a year ago. It took me that long to get there and boy do we have a lot of lost time to make up for! I first dined here at lunch a few weeks ago and finally this week went back for an aperitivo slash light dinner. What can I say about Sorpasso other than it’s

10 recent Rome dining experiences

Between social gatherings and friends being in town, as usual, I’ve had my fair share of eating out over the past few weeks. While returning to some old faves, I also checked out a few new places which is always nice. Here’s a round-up of 10 of my most recent experiences – all good, some downright amazing! (Of course La Pergola doesn’t make this list with a well deserved dedicated

La Pergola: Worth every one of its 3 Michelin Stars

I guess it loses it’s “once in a lifetime” status when you dine at a place more than once. But with very special foodie friends in town I couldn’t resist the urge – on having them ask me to book the best restaurant in Rome – to lock in an evening at La Pergola. Located within the Hilton Waldorf Astoria about 20 minutes north of the centre, La Pergola is

Rome Restaurant Week Continues: Metamorfosi

I don’t venture to the Parioli neighbourhood of Rome that often, so let’s say that when I do, I make it count. I dined with my favourite fellow Rome blogger and friend, Browsing Rome on Friday at the acclaimed Metamorfosi. And what an experience it was. From the crisp, clean and stylish ambience to the impeccable service, to most importantly – the fine, fine food. Here the plates are crafted

Rome Restaurant Week 2012

Restaurant Week is on again in Rome. It’s when you get to try a surprise 3 course meal (for lunch or dinner) at some of the city’s best restaurants for a set price of €25. Drinks are separate of course. More than 80 restaurants across Rome participated with some Michelin star rated places too (add a lazy €10 to the menu for that!). By the time I got to booking

Porcini and Truffle Degustation

If you don’t follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you probably haven’t been bombarded with my pics of the most fantastic 8 course degustation of porcini mushroom and truffle (that’s tartufo – in case you’ve been living under a rock!) I experienced couple of weeks ago. (If you do follow me on those platforms, well a little repeat truffle / porcini pic never killed anyone!) 🙂 The dinner was

Glass Hostaria – for absolute class in Rome

Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of participating in an exclusive food event organised by Roman based bloggers and foodies Tavole Romane and finally ate at the famed and Michelin star rated restaurant Glass Hostaria. Putting it simply I had an amazing food day. And the pictures emulate just that. Actually it was an amazing Rome day, because unlike most things I do, it wasn’t all completely about food.

Seafood feast fit for a King (or Queen)!

Don’t you love going out for dinner with friends? What makes it so enjoyable of course, is great company, food and wine and atmosphere (oh and did I mention good wine?). We had this tonight in droves. A friend of mine organised a dinner at L’Allegro (the happy one in English) – owned by his friend Davide who is Roman but with Sardinian heritage. So at 9pm (average dinner time
