A series of small samples not common, some quite interesting. Sure, not all accept the formula, but in a landscape as vast as that of the Capitoline restaurant, a place so was lacking. Compliments to the chef Francesco Magiar Lucidi. Via Veneto is also now a classic point of view of food. We are among the best hotel restaurants in the capital and could not miss a novelty here: Danilo Ciavattini less than thirty years and now faced with an ambitious project: the restoration of a luxury hotel, the Palace Hotel.

The restaurant “All’Oro” (www.ristorantealloro.it) for most of the experts will be the next Michelin star in Rome. A small local of the Parioli, who manages to keep its own style despite the small size even of the tables. A well balanced menu offering the famous "rocher" of oxtail, alongside new mascarpone ravioli with duck and red wine, and dumplings stuffed with butter and anchovies. Riccardo di Giacinto, tall and handsome, is the chef helped in the room by the gentle companion Ramona. Atlas Coelestis (www.birrificioatlas.it) is the farthest from the center of our lap. Nestled in the outskirts of Rome, a little disguised in a huge container that offers in one large room more solutions. There's pizza (famous and delicious, and also expensive, 20 euros!). There is a brewery, a corner with books and objects, and finally the tables set for dinner. In such an environment is expected to comply with quality ingredients that the menu lists.
