Per Me Giulio Terrinoni
This restaurant in the historic centre of Rome is situated in Vicolo del Malpasso, a street famous throughout Italy for its “tappi” (tapas-style snacks). It’s no surprise then that tapas lunches are one of the specialities served by the chef here – elaborate variations with a strong focus on beautiful presentation and decisive, delicious flavours (available only at lunchtime from Monday to Friday). The main courses are also worthy of note and are subdivided according to their method of cooking (fried, roasted or steamed). Ingredients are carefully chosen, and close attention is also paid to guests’ individual requirements (including vegans) – by calling ahead, you can arrange your own ad hoc menu. The restaurant’s concern for its sustainable impact is evident throughout in small yet important details, such as the support given to the district’s local artisans in the choice of decor and furnishings. In summer, make sure that you book ahead if you’d like to dine at one of the few tables in the charming outdoor space.
